This book looks at Canada's first woman Prime Minister - what she believed, how she operated in the back rooms, and why the Progressive Conservative party chose her.

Murray Dobbin researched Kim Campbell's record as a municipal, provincial and federal politician, discovering how she handled a variety of controversial issues, from school funding cutbacks to the behind-the-scenes negotiations on gun control. He examined her performance in the federal cabinet of Prime Minister Brian Mulroney, noting particularly the policies and decisions on which she succeeded in marking with her personal stamp.

The Politics of Kim Campbell is a critical look at the career of a remarkable Canadian public figure, and at the obstacles she encountered in her political ascent.
