Summary/Review: "Allan Blakeney believed in government as a force for good. As premier of Saskatchewan, he promoted social justice through government intervention in the economy and the welfare state. He created legal and constitutional structures that guaranteed strong human rights, and he safeguarded the integrity of the voting system to support a robust democracy. Blakeney encouraged excellence in public administration to deliver the best possible services and used taxes to help secure equality of opportunity. In Back to Blakeney, scholars reflect on Blakeney's achievements, as well as his constitutional legacy--namely, the notwithstanding clause--and explore the challenges facing democracy today."--
