The book, The Canadian Senate in Comparative Perspective, is broad in scope, and it primary aim is neither to unduly criticize nor support the Senate, but rather to help us understand this understudied legislature, and how it is still capable of "defining Canada's all embracing identity" (p. 20).

In recent years Canada's Senate, Parliament's chamber of sober second thought, has often been the subject of controversy and calls for reform. Protecting Canadian Democracy examines the history, role, and evolution of the Senate; places it in the context of other federal systems; and contrasts its role with that of provincial governments. Contributors analyse the Senate's use of its legislative powers, comparing it with the House of Commons, and assess the Senate's contribution to public policy development and review, showing how the upper chamber functions as a forum within Parliament for the representation of Canada's diverse regional, linguistic, cultural, and socio-economic interests.
