  1. As one who has recently undertaken an exploration of the first fur traders following the British conquest of New France in 1759-1760, I am particularly interested in Mr. Joe Carlen’s expansive view of the origins and development of entrepreneurship under pioneering conditions. In an age of mercantilism, where state protection and free trade were in contention, the entrepreneur juggled hegemonic and conciliatory orientations in a market for furs which was both highly local, continental and global. A Brief History of Entrepreneurship appears to be a promising overview of these universal business drives.
