Company, Crown and Colony: The Hudson's Bay Company and Territorial Endeavour in Western Canada [9781350165649]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
The Hudson's Bay Company was one of the great merchant companies. Granted sole trading rights to a huge part of what is now Canada, they were coerced in the mid-nineteenth century to set up a colonial administration on Vancouver Island to protect British interests at a time of growing expansionism from America to the south and possible threats from a Russian Alaska to the north. 'Company, Crown and Colony' tells the story of the challenges they faced. Drawing on rich archival resources the author provides a detailed account of this turbulent period, revealing the difficulties faced by a leading merchant company as they sought to resolve their conflicting interests of commerce and settlement in a complex situation, and providing fresh and lively insights into the emergence of a region of North America that is today one of the principal commercial centres of Canada.
AUTHOR: Stephen Royle is Professor of Island Geography and Director of the Centre of Canadian Studies at Queen's University, Belfast. A Member of the Royal Irish Academy, he is the author of a number of books including 'The Company's Island' (I.B.Tauris, 2007).
