Calgarys Grand Story is a history of the city as told through the story of the Grand Theatre & the Lougheed Building, two of Calgarys most prominent historic icons. Commissioned by Senator James Lougheed, & his wife, Belle Hardisty Lougheed, the Lougheed building opened to the public in February of 1912 to much fanfare & great anticipation. This was a definitive moment for Calgarians & would mark the beginning of a golden era in the citys history. With the addition of a state-of-the-art theatre on the ground floor beneath offices that would soon become Calgarys premier corporate address, this building would anchor the development of the downtown core well into the 1950s. By mixing business & cultural history, the author sketches a fascinating urban biography of Calgary from 1912 up to Albertas 100th birthday in 2005.

At the turn of the twentieth century, Winnipeg was the fastest-growing city in North America. But its days as a diverse and culturally rich metropolis did not end when the boom collapsed. Prairie Metropolis brings together some of the best new graduate research on the history of Winnipeg and makes a groundbreaking contribution to the history of the city between 1900 and the 1980s. The essays in this collection explore the development of social institutions such as the city's police force, juvenile court, health care institutions, volunteer organizations, and cultural centres. They offer critical analyses on ethnic, gender, and class inequality and conflict, while placing Winnipeg's experiences in national and international contexts.

Prairie Fairies draws upon a wealth of oral, archival, and cultural histories to recover the experiences of queer urban and rural people in the prairies. Focusing on five major urban centres, Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Regina, Edmonton, and Calgary, Prairie Fairies explores the regional experiences and activism of queer men and women by looking at the community centres, newsletters, magazines, and organizations that they created from 1930 to 1985. Challenging the preconceived narratives of queer history, Valerie J. Korinek argues that the LGBTTQ community has a long history in the prairie west, and that its history, previously marginalized or omitted, deserves attention. Korinek pays tribute to the prairie activists and actors who were responsible for creating spaces for socializing, politicizing, and organizing this community, both in cities and rural areas. Far from the stereotype of the isolated, insular Canadian prairies of small towns and farming communities populated by faithful farm families, Prairie Fairies historicizes the transformation of prairie cities, and ultimately the region itself, into a predominantly urban and diverse place.
