141 HEWITT, Steve. Canadian Social History Series. Riding to the Rescue : The Transformation of the RCMP in Alberta and Saskatchewan, 1914-1939.
University of Toronto Press, Toronto, 2006, ISBN:0802048951 
HEWITT, Steve. Riding to the Rescue : The Transformation of the RCMP in Alberta and Saskatchewan, 1914-1939. Toronto: University of Toronto Press, (2006). First Paperback Printing. Pp. (8),ix-xiv,(2),3-205,(5), + 8 p. of black and white plates. Illustrated. 8vo, illustrated red card covers with white lettering to front cover and spine. A volume in The Canadian Social History Series. "The Mountie may be one of Canada's best-known symbols, yet muchof the post-nineteenth century history of the Royal Canadian Mounted Polic e remains unexamined, particularly the years between 1914 and 1939, when the RCMP underwent enormous transformation. The nature of this transformationas it took place in Alberta and Saskatchewan -- where the Mounties have tr aditionally dominated policing -- is the focus of Steve Hewitt's 'Riding tothe Rescue'. During the period covered, the nineteenth-century model of th e RCMP evolved into a twentieth-century version, and the institution that emerged responded to a nation that was being transformed as well. Forces such as industrialization, mass immigration, urbanization, and political radicalism compelled the Mounties to look away from the frontier and toward a new era." -from the introductory preamble.
