The bias of communication by Harold A Innis( Book )

86 editions published between 1951 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 2,292 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
The fur trade in Canada : an introduction to Canadian economic history by Harold A Innis( Book )

132 editions published between 1930 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 2,119 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."--Jacket
Empire and communications by Harold A Innis( Book )

77 editions published between 1950 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 1,210 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
Essays in Canadian economic history by Harold A Innis( Book )

40 editions published between 1956 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Harold A. Innis helped to found the field of Canadian economic history. He is best known for the "staples thesis" which dominated the discourse of Canadian economic history for decades. This volume collects Innis' published and unpublished essays on economic history, from 1929 to 1952, thereby charting the development of the arguments and ideas found in his books The Fur Trade in Canada and The Cod Fisheries. These essays capture Innis' ever evolving views on the practices and uses of economic history as well as Canadian economic history. The new introduction written by prominent historian Matthew Evenden provides a fresh take on Innis life's work and situates the essays in the context of his scholarship as well as recent studies on Canadian economic history. This volume offers invaluable insight into one of Canada's most original thinkers and his interpretation of our nation's history."--
The cod fisheries; the history of an international economy by Harold A Innis( Book )

41 editions published between 1940 and 2018 in English and Spanish and held by 871 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Cod Fisheries, originally published in 1938 and revised and reissued in 1954, 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."--Publisher's description

Changing concepts of time by Harold A Innis( )

18 editions published between 1952 and 2010 in English and held by 837 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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

Harold Innis's History of communications by Harold A Innis( Book )

7 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Boxton, Cheney, and Heyer knit the chapters into a cohesive narrative and help readers navigate Inn's observations by summarizing the heavily detailed factual materials that peppered the unpubllished manuscript. They provide further context for Inni's arguments by adding annotations, references, and pertinent citations to his other writings. The end result is both a testament to Inni's status as a canonical figure in the study of communication and a surprisingly relevant contribution to how we might think about the current sea change in all aspects of social, cultural, political, and economic life stemming from the global shift to digital communication."
Political economy in the modern state by Harold A Innis( Book )

9 editions published between 1944 and 2018 in English and held by 152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Political Economy in the Modern State is Harold Innis's transitional and, in some respects, his most transformative book. Completed in 1946, it is a collection of fifteen chapters plus a remarkable Preface selected and crafted to address four main themes: the problem of power and peace in the post-War era; the ascent of specialized and mechanized forms of knowledge involving, most particularly, the media, the state, and the academy; the crisis facing civilization and, more generally, the modern penchant for unreflexive short-term thinking in the face of mounting contradictions; and Innis's growing focus on what would be called media bias.0In this new edition, editors Robert E. Babe and Edward A. Comor provide not only a general introduction to Innis's largely forgotten book but also dedicated introductions to each of its fifteen chapters and a comprehensive index. Together, Babe and Comor demonstrate how Innis's volume reflects a shift in Innis's focus, away from analytical relativism towards, instead, a reflexive search for objective truths
