Acknowledgments

Friends and colleagues, some current and some past, from both sides of the forty-ninth parallel were instrumental in my ability to produce this study. Foremost I acknowledge one of the premier scholars of Canadian abortion politics, Professor F. L. Morton, of the University of Calgary, who provided an extraordinarily detailed review of my manuscript for M. E. Sharpe. An intellectual debt also is owed to Professor T. Alexander Smith, of the University of Tennessee. Not only do I rely heavily on his important work The Comparative Policy Process (1975) in laying out the process hypotheses I test, but Alex also agreed to review my introductory and concluding chapters. My meeting Professor Sharon L. Sutherland, of Carleton University, at a conference in Mexico City was fortuitous indeed, because she has the reputation of being a keen observer of Canadian bureaucratic politics. She graciously offered me her interpretations over the course of this project and in addition referred me to her personal contacts within the Canadian government. Thanks, Sharon, and you too, Warren. In Mexico City I also met Professor Robert J. Jackson and his wife and coauthor, Doreen; their major textbook on Canadian government and politics was a ready reference by my side.

I integrated into this work research on abortion in Canada that I coauthored elsewhere with Byron W. Daynes, of Brigham Young University, E. Marvin Overby, of the University of Mississippi, and Donley T. Studlar, of West Virginia University. Allow me to extend a special thank-you to Routledge for giving me permission to reprint tables 7.1 and 7.2, which appeared in Donley T. Studlar and Raymond Tatalovich, "Abortion Policy in the United States and Canada: Do Institutions Matter?" in Marianne Githens and Dorothy McBride Stetson, eds., Abortion Politics: Public
