Long praised for its accuracy, readability, and insight, the Canadian Annual Review of Politics and Public Affairs offers a synoptic appraisal of the year's developments in Canadian politics. Canada went to war in 1999, participating in a two-month NATO-led air war against Yugoslavia over its treatment of Kosovar Albanians. Attracting less public attention was an important turn in the country's constitutional arrangements - the creation of Nunavut - producing a self-governing capacity for the Inuit. The year 1999 also saw both the federal and British Columbia governments approve an historic agreement with the Nisga'a Nation. Additionally, Jean Chrétien's Liberal government pushed ahead with its plan to create a law that sets out the rules around any future referendum on Quebec's sovereignty. The Canadian Annual Review is unique in its collection and presentation of the year in politics. The combination of the calendar and the text offers a superb, easy-access reference source for political events, both federal and provincial.

In 2003, Canada earned distinction on the world stage for eradicating deficit spending and for its progressive stance evident in its support for gay marriage, moves to decriminalize possession of marijuana, and liberal immigration policies. However, despite it achievements, Canada faced many new and longstanding political challenges. Canada was not immune to widespread turmoil and uncertainty rooted in war, disease, and the effects of globalization such as SARS, mad cow disease, and a large-scale blackout affecting the north-eastern United States and Ontario. The United States was becoming mired in a complex and prolonged war with Iraq, and a large contingent of Canada's armed forces remained in Afghanistan. Additional security measures were implemented to meet the threat of terrorism, while Mahar Arar's accounts of torture endured in a Syrian jail became a symbol of public doubt about many of the new counter-terrorism initiatives. The Canadian Annual Review of Politics and Public Affairs 2003is the latest instalment in an acclaimed series that offers informed commentary on important events, and thoughtfully considers their significance in local and international contexts.

Long praised for its accuracy, readability, and insight, the Canadian Annual Review of Politics and Public Affairs offers a synoptic appraisal of the year's developments in Canadian politics. Although the world entered a new century and a new millennium at the beginning of 2000, it was the year 2001 that truly seemed to herald a new age. With the events of 11 September, and in the months that followed, Canadian public life, like that of much of the world, was reconfigured. The year will continue to be defined by the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, and by the responses taken by the United States and its neighbours and allies, including Canada. It was an eventful year in Canada in many ways, particularly in regard to international affairs. One of the most significant events was the Summit of the Americas, which brought the heads of government in the Americas to Quebec City. The summit was held within an immense exclusion zone and was surrounded by protest, some of it violent. The Canadian Annual Review is unique in its collection and presentation of information and analysis of the year in politics. Supplemented by a detailed calendar and subject and name indexes, the volume is a reliable, easy-access reference on the political scene in Canada.
