2 AGUIRRE, Robert W. International Straits of the World, Vol.15 Panama Canal.. Volume 15 in the International Straits of the World series. First Edition
Martinus Nijhoff, Leiden / Boston, 2010, ISBN:9004177280 
AGUIRRE, Robert W. The Panama Canal. Leiden / Boston : Martinus Nijhoff Publishers, 2010. First Edition. Pp. (4),[v]-xii,(2),[1]-293,(5). Maps, tables, illustrations in text. 8vo, green paper-covered boards, light green lettering to front & spine. Volume 15 in the International Straits of the World series. "The relationship between straits and interoceanic canals has always been ambiguous. Unlike straits, interoceanic canals are neither natural nor subject to a universal legal regime like the Law of the Sea. However, straits and interoceanic canals share comparable historical experiences due to their geographic similarities. Suspending interest in a purely legal analysis, The Panama Canal lets logic yield to experience and considers the Panama Canal as an 'artificial strait'. The volume recasts the dynamic events that have changed the Panama Canal in the context of three interactive elements: environments, flows, and territoriality. Cleverly deciphering from history how changes in one element led to changes in another, The Panama Canal suggests a considerably new perspective for viewing the canal's past and future." - from rear cover.

5 AITKEN, Hugh G.J. Welland Canal Company : A Study in Canadian Enterprise. First Edition in dustjacket.
Harvard University Press, Cambridge, Mass., 1954, 
AITKEN, Hugh G.J. The Welland Canal Company : A Study in Canadian Enterprise. Cambridge, Mass. : Harvard University Press, 1954. First Edition. Pp (6),[vii]-ix,(3),-[1]-178,(2) + map. Another map in text. Tables, charts in text. 8vo, tan cloth, black lettering to spine. In the Studies in Entrepreneurial History series. "Among the transportation improvements of the nineteenth century in North America the Welland Canal occupies a position of uniqueimportance. Opened for traffic in 1829, the Canal provided a navigable wat erway around Niagara Falls, making it possible for ships to pass freely from Lake Erie to Lake Ontario. Its significance for the expansion of shippingon the Great Lakes can hardly he overestimated; in addition it played a vi tal roie in the rivalry between American and Canadian transportation routesfor the trade of the West, being designed initially as Canada's answer to the Erie Canal between Buffalo and New York. Enlarged no less than three times since its original construction, the Welland Canal continues in active use at the present day and promises to acquire even greater importance, both for Canada and for the United States, with the completion of the proposedSt. Lawrence Seaway. In this book Mr. Aitkcn relates the history of the pr ivate corporation which constructed the first Welland Canal and analyzes its operations and problems in detail. He focuses particular attention on theentrepreneurial group responsible for the inception and execution of the p roject, upon their partlv conflicting interests, and upon the way in which thev created an organization to their purposes. Mr. Aitken deals chiefly with problems of promotion, construction, finance, and management, and identifies the sources of the Company's principal difficulties: managerial inexperience, scarcity of capital, inadequate engineering skills, and political opposition. While the book is primarily a biography of the Company rather than of the men who composed it, considerable emphasis is laid on the influence of individuals upon the formation and execution of policy, particularly on the roles played by three men: William Hamilton Merritt, a mill owner and merchant in the Niagara peninsula, later an important Canadian politician; John B. Yates, a capitalist of Albany, New York, by profession a manager of lotteries; and John H. Dunnn, receiver general in the government of Upper Canada. These individuals are identified as the nucleus of the entrepreneurial group and an attempt is made to analyze their motives and appraise the functions they performed in the Company." (from the dj). Contents :Preface; 1. Upper Canada: The Inland Province; 2. Promotion; 3. Construction; 4. Finance; 5. Entrepreneurshp. Appendix : Revenue, Traffic, Costs, and Sources of Capital.

8 ANGUS, James T. Respectable Ditch : A History of the Trent-Severn Waterway 1833-1920. First Edition in dustjacket.
McGill-Queen's, Montreal and kingston, 1988, ISBN:0773505970 
ANGUS, James T. A Respectable Ditch : A History of the Trent-Severn Waterway 1833-1920. Kingston / Montreal : McGill-Queen's University Press, (1988).First Printing. Pp. (5),[vi]-xiv,(2),3-455,(3), including plates. Illustra ted in black and white. 8vo, decorated brown cloth with black lettering to spine. "In some respects the history of the Trent-Severn Waterway resemblesthe history of Canada. One parallels the other. The same political and eco nomic tensions that have constantly beset the country can be identified in the canal's story: defence against American invasion, free trade versus tariff protection, private enterprise or government intervention, the problem of moving vast quantities of grain from the central plains to deep-water ports, freight rates, energy production and who should control it, and the obsessive preoccupation with federal and provincial responsibilities. What follows is a record of how these national questions affected the development of a waterway that the country could ill afford and only a handful of people wanted. Consequently, this is not a story about transportation or engineering. It is a book about politics -- the politics of dreamers." - from the dustjacket. Contents: I: The Colonial Years, 1833-41: 1. James Bethune's Waterway; 2. The Bobcaygeon Lock; 3. The Question of Routes; 4. Improvements on the Inland Waters; 5. Improvements on the River Trent; 6. Stoppage of the Works.
