We are far too neglectful of history. It is not so much that we do not realize that history is important but that we fail to consider how it is important on the scale of every day as well as the grand. We connect history with kings and queens, with armies and victories and defeats, and forget that it is at least as much about how people dressed and what they ate and how they went about the endless task of making money. Donald Creighton’s The Empire Of The St. Lawrence: A Study Of Commerce And Politics reminds us of how historical forces shape everything – even the way in which we do business – as well as how the ways in which people do business have historical consequences for the generations that come after them. This book, while it focuses on an era sufficiently distant from our own in time (the period from 1763 to 1850) that we might well think that there are few connections between Canadian business today and the rise and fall of a mercantile empire of the 18th and 19th centuries, helps to illuminate many of the dynamics of today’s economic structure.
