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, No description available, This classic book Harold Innis s last returns to print with a new introduction by James Carey 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, The many published volumes of the writings of Harold Adams Innis testify to his extraordinary grasp of the ordering principles of human history The notes that he left at the time of his death provide a new and revealing profile of the inner workings of this restless and relentless mind br br Innis maintained added to and corrected in the last seven years of his life a single system of cross referenced notes which came to be called the Idea File Before his death in he collected these notes into a single numbered collation In this edition the material has been arranged in chronological order to give a sense of the development of Innis s ideas and concerns br br Innis s interests were many and varied and this collection of some notes covers an encyclopedic range of topics The different lines of Innis s investigations converge however in his interest in basic political and cultural issues and in his fundamental concern for the preservation of individual freedom and creativity At heart Innis was a moralist whose hatred of oppressive social institutions led him to examine them from many angles It is a fascinating odyssey Every reader will be refreshed and enriched by sharing Innis s life long intellectual adventure
