Kozolanka looks at how the Mike Harris's new right conservative government came to power in Ontario Premier Mike Harris by using successful strategies from other countries to gain public accquiescence for its neo-conservative policies. Relying on evidence drawn from literature, interviews and content analysis, she argues that this trajectory was "neither haphazard nor narrowly constructed."
