Paul Kellogg, Centre for Interdisciplinary Studies, Athabasca University:

"Well-written and comprehensive, this book stands on its own as an intellectual contribution to the study of Canadian political economy. Heather Whiteside integrates key themes often not foregrounded in the literature, including social reproduction, settler-colonialism, and ecology, making it a major contribution to the discipline and a very useful resource for teaching."

Byron Sheldrick, Department of Political Science, University of Guelph:

"An incredibly important volume, Canadian Political Economy is a constellation, bringing together significant and important research and taking stock of the discipline. Conforming to a high standard of scholarship, Heather Whiteside explores alternative forms of organizing, non-profit organizations, as well as topics of inequality, urban issues, and social policy, providing much needed attention to issues rarely explored in Canadian political economy."
