Dream No Little Dreams is the biography of that government, led by the great Tommy Douglas of the Co-operative Commonwealth Federation (CCF, later the New Democratic Party). Providing a case study in the art and practice of governing, A.W. Johnson analyses the policy decisions of the CCF with the added benefit at times of having an insider's viewpoint. Johnson, a senior public servant in Saskatchewan during most of the Douglas years, begins by introducing the government's central mission - the transformation of the role of the state - and describes how it achieved this goal over some seventeen years."--Jacket."
