To celebrate Alberta's centennial, the University of Alberta Press and the University of Calgary Press are proud to introduce Alberta Formed - Alberta Transformed, a two-volume set spanning a remarkable 12,000 years of history and showcasing the work of thirty-four of Alberta's most respected scholars. Volume 1 sets the stage - from human beginnings in Alberta - to the eve of Alberta's inauguration as a province in 1905, while Volume 2 takes readers through the twentieth century and up to the 2005 centennial. Edited by provincial historian Michael Payne, along with Donald Wetherell and Catherine Cavanaugh, Alberta Formed - Alberta Transformed consists of thirty distinctive and richly illustrated essays representing a wide range of voices and points of view. Moving beyond straightforward commemorative history, the contributors often tackle contentious issues and question previous, more conventional approaches and assumptions. Each essay represents a snapshot in time, focusing on a person, a trend, or an event that has played a significant part in shaping the vibrant, often surprising and sometimes raucous, story of Alberta.
