Somewhat broader than its title suggests, the book focuses not merely on Saskatchewan politics, but also on the province's governing institutions, public policies, and political, economic, and social development. Its first half is devoted to key political institutions, including the legislature, the monarchy, the cabinet, the public service, the judiciary, and parts of the party and electoral systems. The other half addresses an array of political, social, and economic developments that have occurred primarily during the past two decades involving economic and financial management, elections, politics and the media, federal-provincial relations, and the role of First Nations in the province's politics and elections.
