Abstract

Within the confines of this thesis a theory of capitalism and the state apparatus is related to the class struggle by an analysis and scientific investigation of work stoppages. The intensity as well as the geographic, industrial, and historical context of strikes is examined in the bi-national political economy of Canada. The overall patterns of strikes, the economic and political settings in which they are generated and resolved, are examined, as are the effects of strikes on society in Canada.

In all this thesis is the presentation of a theory of the bi-national political economy of Canada. It is a theory of capital accumulation as class struggle.
