Abstract

Provides a critical assessment of labour's longstanding relationship with the NDP and makes the case that organized labour's own 'cultural of defensiveness' has helped to maintain its enduring links with the NDP, despite the party's diminishing interest in projects historically associated with social democracy. --Editor's introduction
