An early examination of the first 10 years of the oil boom in Alberta (post 1947) and the effects on the economic position of the province. An excellent period resource that provides a contemporary perspective to the unparalleled growth of the industry. Prior to the discovery the province of Alberta had little industry and a static population but has changed to become one of the wealthiest parts of Canada with an ever-increasing population and rising revenues derived directly or indirectly from the expanding oil industry. Fine, tight copy in a moderately rubbed dust jacket with light wear to the spine ends, corners, and extremities with two chips to top edge of rear panel
