Canada has always been a trading nation. From the early days of fur
and fish, the country has relied on international trade to bolster
its economy and today a remarkable 90 percent of our gross national
product is attributable to exports and imports. Michael Hart's
brilliantly crafted overview and analysis of the historical
foundations of modern Canadian trade policy is the first survey of
the subject in over fifty years.Hart skilfully guides readers
through more than three centuries of trade history. His engaging
narrative explains how Canadians, who enjoy one of the highest
standards of living in the world, have largely come to accept the
need for an open, well-ordered international economy. Close
attention to trade and related economic policy choices, he argues,
is crucial if Canada intends to adapt to the challenges of the new
globalized economy.This bold and original study is a tour de force,
evocative of the pioneering works in national history by Harold
Innis and Donald Creighton. Hart's experience as an active trade
negotiator is reflected throughout this accessible and important
work. A Trading Nation is a classic study of Canadian history and
