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.

19 ALEXANDER, Bruce K. Globalisation of Addiction : A Study in Poverty of the Spirit. First Edition in dustjacket.
Oxford University Press, Oxford, 2008, ISBN:9780199230129 
ALEXANDER, Bruce K. The Globalisation of Addiction : A Study in Poverty of the Spirit. Oxford: Oxford University Press, (2008). First Printing. Pp. (12),[1]-470,(6), + 2 p. of colour plates. 8vo, black cloth with silver lettering to spine. The author is affiliated with the Department of Psychology at Simon Fraser University. "Scientific medicine has failed to bring addiction under control. There are no reliable methods to cure it, prevent it, or take the pain out of it. There is no durable consensus on what addiction is, what causes it, or what should be done about it. Meanwhile, it continues to increase around the world. This book argues that the cause of this failure to control addiction is that the conventional wisdom of the 19th and 20th centuries focused too single-mindedly on the afflicted individual addict.Although addiction obviously manifests itself in individual cases, its pre valence differs dramatically between societies. [...] This book shows that the social circumstances that spread addiction in a conquered tribe or a failing civilisation are also built into today's globalising free-market society. [...] The book [also] argues that the most effective response to a growing addiction problem is a social and poltiical one, rather than an individual one. Such a solution would not put the doctors, psychologists, social workers, politicians, and priests, who have served with such dedication, out of work, but it would incorporate their practices in a larger social preoject. The project is to reshape society with enough forces and imagination to enable people to find social integration and meaning in everyday life." - from the dustjacket.
