Product description


‘This book will appeal to a wide range of scholars and students of history, political science, and business offering them a fresh perspective of historical developments that shaped an evolving relationship between capitalists and government during the twentieth century.’ (Dustin Galer Histoire sociale / Social History; vol 47:92:2014)

‘This important contribution will be read with great profit by those both in and outside of Canada…The aims and goal here are laudable, the Dominion of Capital makes a great contribution to telling the story of the emergence of Canada’s more continental (branch plants and American investment) and mixed (with nationalized railways, for example) economy by the 1950s.’ (Anastakis American Historical Review October 2014)

‘Don Nerbas has produced a lively work capable of appealing to undergraduates and the general public.’ (Andrew Smith Canadian Historical Review, vol 95:02:2014)

‘Nerbas’ volume is an important, thought-provoking contribution to our understanding of Canadian economic and business history in a neglected field of study.’

(Hugh Grant Labour/Le Travail vol 74:2013)


Dominion of Capital is a fresh, innovative, and exciting study that makes use of an extensive and diverse range of sources to provide a much richer and deeper analysis of business-state relations from the 1920s to the 1940s than we have previously had. Adding a great deal of new information to earlier work, Don Nerbas takes the discussion of business-state relations to new levels of analytical sophistication. His book will doubtless be appreciated by scholars in political, economic, business, labour, and social history. Thanks to its highly engaging biographical approach, non-academic readers will also find it quite interesting.”
(Craig Heron, Department of History, York University)

Dominion of Capital makes a significant empirical contribution to our knowledge of twentieth-century Canadian history. The scholarship is solid and up-to-date and the narrative case studies are a joy to read. ”
(Gregory P. Marchildon, Canada Research Chair in Public Policy and Economic History, and Professor, Johnson-Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy, University of Regina)
