Personal update

Nov 14, 2013

After 45 years of teaching in the Department of Political Science, I retired this summer.  However, I am still teaching in the MA program in the School of Public Policy.

Now that I have more spare time, I've launched this website to bring my publications together into one place.  Academics always flatter themselves that someone might actually want to read what they've written!  The site is still a little rough around the edges as I'm just learning how to use it, but it'll get better.

I'll be bringing out two books in the spring of 2014.  One is an academic book (McGill-Queen's University Press), entitled WINNING POWER: CANADIAN CAMPAIGNING IN THE TWENTY-FIRST CENTURY.  It discusses the timeless principles of campaigning as well as recent developments in campaign techniques.  It concludes with a case study of the 2012 Alberta Wildrose campaign, which I managed.

The other book is a trade book about the "Incident" that happened to me earlier this year.  More on this book later.
