Tax, Order, and Good Government

A New Political History of Canada, 1867-1917

Auteur/ Illustrateur / Sous la direction de : E.A. Heaman

Was Canada’s Dominion of 1867 an experiment in political domination? Looking to taxes provides the answer: they are a privileged measure of both political agency and political domination. To pay one’s taxes was the sine qua non of entry into political life, but taxes are also the point of politics, which is always about the control of wealth. Modern states have everywhere been born of tax revolts, and Canada was no exception. E. A. Heaman shows that the competing claims of the propertied versus the people are hardwired constituents of Canadian political history.
