Very Good in Very Good jacket. 8vo. pp. 214, black and white photographs throughout. "'Talk to My Laywer! ' is a social history as it should be-entertaining, informative, and ground-breaking. The Calgary Bar Association chose well when it commissioned best-selling historian James H. Gray to bring together the vast resources of oral history, archival documents, and court records in one comprehensive book on the legal profession in Calgary and its effect upon the development of the province and the country. It may be a surprise to some that the courtrooms of Calgary were indeed the scenes of pivotal events in Canadian history, such as the battles over prohibition and conscription, the fall of the Alberta UFA party in the 1930's, and R.B. Bennett's titanic war with Sir James Lougheed-the start of Bennett's rocky road to the highest office in Canada."Previous owners bookplate on front end page.
