Our new book! A Quiet Evolution: The Emergence of Indigenous - Local Intergovernmental Relations in Canada

Jen Nelles and I have written a new book to be published by University of Toronto Press in August. The book is called, "A Quiet Evolution: The Emergence of Indigenous - Local Intergovernmental Partnerships in Canada." 

We produced a short video that summarizes one of the findings from our book.  

PhD, Jeffrey Simpson, and other things I learned from the Donner Dinner

Last night my wife and I attended the annual Donner Prize Dinner for the best book pubilshed that year on Canadian public policy.  My co-authored book with Tom Flanagan and Andre Le Dressay was shortlisted many years ago and ever since, we've been invited to the dinner.

It's actually a pretty fun event. Great appetizers.  Excellent dinners.  An an open bar.  Usually interesting dinner mates (this time we were seated with Carolyn Tuohy, Chad Gadfield, and my most excellent colleague, Andy Sancton).  Talk about an academics' dream (we dream small)!
