SAWLER, Harvey. Twenty-First-Century Irvings. Foreword by Francis P. McGuire. (Halifax): Nimbus, (2007). Pp. [i]-xvi,1-192. 8vo, green cloth with giltlettering to spine. A biography of the next generation of the Irving famil y, heads of one of eastern Canada's largest business families. "Famed Canadian industrialist K.C. Irving has always been considered ground zero of theIrving family empire. And rightly so -- when the first Irvings arrived in 1833 from Dumfriesshire, Scotland, they were completely impoverished. Threegenerations later, the name K.C. Irving hit the Forbes top billionaires li st, making K.C. one of the richest men in the world and certainly the most powerful businessperson in Canada. But there is much more to the Irving story than the fascinating and brilliant K.C. and his immediate legacy. 'Twenty-First-Century Irvings' takes a careful look at both the family foundations upon which this empire was built and the dozen or more individuals who, in the twenty-first century, constitute the future of this important business family." - from the dust jacket.
