At the turn of the nineteenth century, Saskatchewan was one of the fastest growing provinces in the country. In the early 1900s, it revolutionized the Canadian political landscape and gave rise to socialist governments that continue to influence Canadian politics today. It was the birthplace of Canada's publicly funded health care system, and home to a thriving arts and literary community that helped define western Canadian culture. In "Perspectives of Saskatchewan," twenty-one noted scholars present an in-depth look at some of the major developments in the province's history, including subjects such as art, literature, demographics, politics, northern development, and religion. It lays the foundations for a greater understanding of Saskatchewan's unique history, identity, and place in Canada.
