Editorial Reviews

Review

'[In] the field of broad interpretation, no subsequent work has replaced The Fur Trade in Canada.'

Review

'A lively pace is maintained from the beginning of the book, and upon reaching Innis's conclusion, the reader finds that a much neglected aspect of Canadian history has been satisfactorily illuminated. For the collectors of Canadiana, researchers in need of background material, or the plain curious, this is an excellent book ... a diverting book, a controversial book, and a stimulating book ... It deserves to be read not just once, but many times and by many people.'

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a reprint of the 1970 edition of the 1956 revision of a book originally published in 1930. The editor praises it for emphasizing the role of geography - something that I had thought was a commonplace. Innis is rather vague on the details, either because he is interested in the big picture or because detailed research had not yet been done. As an economic historian he includes a lot of statistics but they are difficult to interpret because of the lack of basic statistics like the value of money and annual beaver exports. If you have already read other books on the fur trade you might want this one too.
