The fur trade in Canada : an introduction to Canadian economic history by Harold Adams Innis ( Book )
107 editions published between 1927 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 2,051 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"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."--BOOK JACKET
The bias of communication by Harold Adams Innis ( Book )
60 editions published between 1951 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,925 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book "is a collection of essays by one of Canada's greatest historians, on a subject that opened broad new avenues of thought on the role of media in the creation of history. Marshall McLuhan, deeply influenced by these essays, led North America to a new awareness of the role of media in contemporary culture. The works of Harold Innis are seminal in the study of Canadian history; the essays in this volume continue to generate intense debate among historians, communications scholars, and media theorists. This new edition includes a thoughtful introduction by two scholars who outline the career of Innis and the development of his ideas. They go on to elucidate the grand themes of the essays: a communicational approach to history, and a critical reflection on the situation of culture and technology in recent times. They identify in the essays all the concepts associated with Innis's communications work: medium, bias, monopoly of knowledge, empire, and especially the oral tradition. Finally, they assess the influence of the book on the study of communications theory and Canadian history"--Back cover
Empire and communications by Harold Adams Innis ( Book )
51 editions published between 1950 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"An internationally renowned scholar and political economist, Innis was the forefather of the 'global village' concept popularized by Marshall McLuhan in the 1960s. Innis' life-time of research resulted in this seminal work which examines the evolution of communications media from stone tablets to printing presses, and the direct impact of various media on the duration and prosperity of the empires of Egypt, Rome, Greece, Babylon, Europe, and America. In this revised edition, David Godfrey brings Innis' classic study of communications theory into the 1980s. Applying Innis' examinations of civilization and technology to the present, he helps us understand today's explosion of electronic media in Canada and the world"--Back cover

"This classic book, Harold Innis's last, returns to print with a new introduction. An elaboration of Innis's earlier theories, Changing Concepts of Time looks at then-new technological changes in communication and considers the different ways in which space and time are perceived. Innis explores military implications of the U.S. Constitution, freedom of the press, communication monopolies, culture, and press support of presidential candidates, among other interesting and diverse topics."--Jacket
