Some edge wear to corners ; A tight solid book. Text unmarked; Trade PB; 372 pages; The Riel Rebellions, the Winnipeg General Strike, the founding of the CCF and Reform parties, the struggle for provincial control of natural resources--much of the impetus for change in Canada has come from the West. The West offers a history of Confederation from the point of view of the four Western provinces. J.F. Conway traces the origins of regional conflict to the pre-Confederation period and follows the story of the West in Confederation right up to recent battles with Ottawa over resources and constitutional powers. This revised edition contains a new introduction as well as a new chapter covering the West during the 1980s and early 1990s.
