This book focuses on the shared Pacific West political arena of Washing State and the Province of British Columbia, but has many implications for comparison drawn at the national level. Using multiple methodologies, the book reports the results of a series on investigative differences in the two countries, including political cultures and public preferences in three major areas of public policy: native claims, immigration, and forest resource management.
