The CBHA/ACHA Book Review section is up and running. Our inaugural review, by Daniel Simeone of McGill University, is of Robert Sweeny’s prize winning Why Did We Choose to Industrialize? Montreal 1819-1849 (MQUP, 2015). It is our hope to publish at least one review per issue of the CBHA/ACHA newsletter The Prospectus. Our reviews will focus on works of Canadian business history. However, we will also attempt to provide a wide coverage of economic, social, legal, and labour history. Business history should be informed by a broad view of the best work in related disciplines. As part of this mandate we will include works on international business subjects. There are multiple histories to tell of Canadian business not the least of which is our connection to the greater world of historical scholarship.
