This is the blog of Andrew Smith, a senior lecturer in History in the Department of International Studies and Social Science, Coventry University.
My teaching areas are: North American history, British imperial history, business history, and globalization. My research interests centre on Canadian political and business history although I also work on the histories of other parts of the former British Empire.
Past research: My first book, which was published in 2008, was on the financial aspects of Canadian Confederation and the role of the City of London. My second book was a co-edited collection on the history of entrepreneurship in Canada. My third book, which is will be published by University of Toronto Press in November 2014, is an edited collection on globalization and Canadian history. I have also published a number of articles and book chapters on topics such as the history of taxation, ethnicity and international capital flows, race and business, entrepreneurship, and banking history.
