No description available, At the time of its publication in i The Fur Trade in Canada i challenged and inspired scholars historians and economists Now almost seventy years later Harold Innis s fundamental reinterpretation of Canadian history continues to exert a magnetic influence br br Innis has long been regarded as one of Canada s foremost historians and in The Fur Trade in Canada he presents several histories in one social history through the clash between colonial and aboriginal cultures economic history in the development of the West as a result of Eastern colonial and European needs and transportation history in the case of the displacement of the canoe by the York boat Political history appears in Innis s examination of the nature of French British rivalry and the American Revolution and business history is represented in his detailed account of the Hudson s Bay and Northwest Companies and the industry that played so vital a role in the expansion of Canada br br In his introduction to this new edition Arthur J Ray argues that i The Fur Trade in Canada i is the most definitive economic history and geography of the country ever produced Innis s revolutionary conclusion that Canada was created because of its geography not in spite of it is a captivating idea but also an enigmatic proposition in light of the powerful decentralizing forces that threaten the nation today Ray presents the history of the book and concludes that Innis s great book remains essential reading for the study of Canada, The Cod Fisheries originally published in and revised and reissued in presented a new interpretation of European and North American history that has since become a classic With that rare skill he possessed of weaving together the various strands of a complex and difficult historical situation Innis showed how the exploitation of the cod fisheries from the fifteenth century to the twentieth has been closely tied up with the whole economic and political development of Western Europe and North America br br The relationship of the fisheries to the maritime greatness of Britain and to the growth of New England as an important commercial power is particularly stressed and in the examination of the conflicts growing up about this industry are revealed the forces underlying the struggle between Britain and France for control of the new world and the forces which led to the collapse of thye British Empire in America and the rise of an independent new world political power The political struggles with Nova Scotia and the long conflict with the United States continuing far into the nineteenth century are examined in careful detail, Biography of Peter Pond Canadian explorer one of the first Europeans to penetrate the Canadian interior
