Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: At The Time Of Its Publication In 1930, The Fur Trade In Canada Challenged and inspired scholars, historians, and economists. Now, almost seventy years later, Harold Innis' fundamental reinterpretation of Canadian history continues to exert a magnetic influence.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 -- the clash between colonial and aboriginal cultures; economic history -- the development of the West as a result of eastern and European needs; transportation history -- the displacement of the canoe by the York boat; political history -- the nature of French and British rivalry and the American Revolution; and business history -- a detailed account of the Hudson's Bay and Northwest Companies and the industry that played so vital a role in the expansion of Canada.In his introduction to this new edition, A.J. Ray states that The Fur Trade in Canada is arguably the most definitive economic history and geography of the country ever produced. Innis' revolutionary, conclusion was that Canada was created because of its geography, no in spite of it -- 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.'. Buchnummer des Verkäufers ABE_book_new_0802081967
