"The Canadian Senate in Bicameral Perspective is the first scholarly study of the Senate in over a quarter century and the first analysis of the upper house as one chamber of a bicameral legislature. David E. Smith's aim in this work is to demonstrate the interrelationship of the two chambers and the constraints this relationship poses for Senate reform. He analyses past literature on the Senate and current proposals for reform - such as a Triple-E Senate - and compares Canada's upper chamber with those of Australia, the United States, Germany, and the United Kingdom, noting a revival of interest in Canada and abroad in upper chambers and bicameralism." "Drawing on parliamentary debates and committee reports, as well as a broad range of secondary sources, The Canadian Senate in Bicameral Perspective examines the Canadian Senate within the international context, shedding light on its role as a political institution and arguing for a renewed investigation into its future."--Jacket.
