A New Introduction to Harold Innis’ Essays in Economic History

This March, the University of Toronto Press will re-publish Harold Innis’ Essays in Canadian Economic History, which was published posthumously in 1956.  I have written a new introduction to the volume, seeking to provide some background on the author and how the book collection came to be.  I also reflect on the changing interest in and readings of Innis across the social sciences from the 1950’s forward.
