Harold Innis in the New Century: Reflections and Refractions

Acland, Charles R.

A collection of original essays that moves beyond the prevalent view of Harold Innis as a technological determinist, "Harold Innis in the New Century" brings his innovative ideas to bear upon a variety of contemporary issues, such as postmodernism, liberalism, gender, and cultural policy. The book is divided into three sections: "Reflections on Innis" provides a historical reassessment of Innis, "Gaps and Silences" considers the limitations of both Innis's thought and his interpreters, and "Innis and Cultural Theory" offers speculations on his influence on cultural analysis. The interpretations offered reflect the changing landscape of intellectual life as boundaries between traditional disciplines blur and new interdisciplinary fields emerge. "Harold Innis in the New Century" is a valuable resource for scholars and students of Canadian studies, communication studies, cultural studies, economic history, and political science.
