Tommy’s Team: The People Behind the Douglas Years

by Stuart Houston and Bill Waiser

Fifth House Publishing
June 2010

$19.95 (paper)


Tommy’s Team offers an unprecedented and fascinating look at the people who played a significant, and often influential, role in the life and career of Tommy Douglas up until he decided to step down as Saskatchewan premier in 1961. All of these individuals are interesting in their own right, but it is the connection to Tommy that shapes and informs their roles. The result is a collection of 36 stories that provides a broader, at times more nuanced, perspective on Douglas and helps explain why he was one of the most successful political leaders of his era and why his government had such a lasting legacy.
