This volume, first published in 1998, collects analyses of the Multilateral Agreement on Investment by labour activists, Aboriginal leaders, environmentalists and academics.
The MAI, when finalized in 1998 and submitted to national legislatures for ratification, will be a charter of rights and freedoms for international capital. This book is the most substantive critical analysis available on the subject, examining the MAI's economic, social, cultural and environmental effects in Canada and worldwide.
Dismantling Democracy is a key resource for anyone interested in understanding the agreement, and its impact on Canada and the world.

Contents:
1 The MAI and Its Implications for Canadians
2 Multilateral Deregulation of Investment
3 The MAI and Competitive Austerity
4 The MAI and Labour Standards
5 The MAI and Environmental Regulation
6 The MAI and National and International Development
7 The MAI and Canada - Sectoral Impacts

"Each of the writers presents compelling arguments.... a thought-provoking book"

- Graeme S. Mount Canadian Book Review Annual

"...the authors --research associates of the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives--argue that the MAI, driven by powerful U.S.-based multinationals, will strongly limit Canada's ability to set its own social, cultural, and environmental priorities."

- Scott Anderson Quill & Quire
