"The history and economic effects of Imperial preference as applied to the trade of the British Colonies, and otherprotectionist measures taken to foster intra-imperial trade, provide the c entral theme of Dr. Meyer's book. It also outlines the history and economicimportance of the trade relations of the British Colonies with the United States and the principal commercial Powers of the continent of Europe, and the greographic region to which they belong.
