Product Description

Review

"'In Riding to the Rescue, Steve Hewitt provides a novel western-Canadian context in answering the two main questions of his study: how did the RCMP survive beyond its wild-west infancy, and why did it transform itself? He argues not only that the RCMP refashioned itself as a domestic security intelligence service and an adaptable quasi-militarized police force, but also that these changes sowed the seeds for its later troubles. Indeed, what secured the future for the RCMP in the 1920s ultimately led to the demise of its Security Service half a century later.' - Mark Kristmanson, author of Plateaus of Freedom: Nationality, Culture and State Security in Canada, 1940-1960."
