    The Historical Influence And Legacy Of The Alaskan Boundary Dispute

    Get PDF
    This thesis was an investigation into the historical significance and interpretation the Alaskan boundary dispute played in the tripartite relations of Canada, the United States, and Great Britain. The first purpose of this work was to fully examine Hay- Herbert Treaty, emphasizing the hitherto unacknowledged benefits inherent in the treaty. The second purpose of this work was to reexamine Theodore Roosevelt\u27s actions that have previously been the focal point of research in the Alaskan boundary dispute. The final purpose of this work was to explain the greater historical importance Canadians have maintained in the Alaskan boundary dispute and the affect of that greater relative significance. In more specific terms, the research showed the considerable study and emphasis the Alaskan boundary dispute received in Canadian historiography in opposition to the lack of research on this topic in the United States historiography. The methodology of this thesis consisted of analyzing primary documents from diplomatic figures. Emphasis was given to the letters between Secretary of State John Hay, President Roosevelt, Henry Cabot Lodge, Prime Minister Laurier, Clifford Shifton, Lord A1verstone, and Henry White. However, newspaper reports from toe United States, Canada, and Great Britain were also explored. Secondary works used included biographies of key figures and histories dealing with foreign relations between the countries. These latter sources were also engaged as primary sources when investigating the historiography

    The Canadian-American Dispute Over Dixon Entrance

    Get PDF
    The body of water between the southern tip of Alaska\u27s panhandle and British Columbia\u27s Queen Charlotte islands, known as Dixon Entrance, is one of four external maritime boundaries between the United States and Canada. This particular boundary has been an area of dispute ever since it was established and settlement does not appear to be imminent. yet, this dispute continues to create poor management of fish stocks, trade disruption, feelings of frustration among fishermen of both nations, and in general, it remains a thorn in the side of United States-Canadian relations. In this paper I intend to review the history behind the disputed area, the issues involved, the positions of each nation, and the applicable international law. I will examine the various options available to the United States and Canada. I will then place myself in the unenviable position of arbiter and propose a solution to this long lasting boundary dispute

    Columbia at sea: America enters the Pacific, 1787-1793

    Get PDF
    This dissertation evaluates the earliest phase of American engagement in the Pacific Ocean through a close examination of the fur-trading ship Columbia during the years 1787-93. I argue that Columbia established the dominant pattern of American commerce in the Pacific and, in doing so, played a significant role in the integration of disparate shores into a single Pacific World. This study also reconstructs her pioneering, yet understudied voyages in order to challenge a historiographical neglect of the eighteenth-century foundations of American empire in the Pacific. My research unfolds on three scales. First, Columbia reveals a series of interconnected local histories that hinge upon individuals in Boston, on the Northwest Coast of America, and in Canton. Second, her expeditions show how American merchants and sea captains leveraged transnational variations in trade to reorient the United States toward the commerce of the Pacific Ocean. Third, Columbia demonstrates how entrepreneurs of the Early Republic established a global trade circuit integrating the markets of the United States, the Pacific World, and China. This study also stresses the experimental nature of the Columbia expeditions. By reconstructing the financial outcomes of her voyages, I emphasize improvisation and adaptation as vital strategies in the development of a successful enterprise in the ocean hemisphere. Columbia’s success inspired a new generation of investors, imitators, and innovators to pursue similar profits in the Pacific World

    Globalization at Risk: The Changing Preferences of States and Societies

    Get PDF
    After long, wide trends toward freer and more integratedmarkets, peoples and ideas, reluctance to subordinate the ideals of globalization to state interests shows signs of serious erosion. Recent examples include the breakdown of international institutions, the rise in state control over energy resources and their use as diplomatic leverage, and US abandonment of the principles of globalization. The sources of these changing preferences are both ideological and utilitarian. The result is that key elements of globalization are at risk, but with unpredictable consequences.political economy, globalization, international institutions, economic nationalism, resource nationalism, financial crisis

    The Cowlitz Corridor: the Passage Through Time

    Get PDF
    The purpose of this thesis is to study the earliest recorded history of the Cowlitz River corridor, focusing on early exploration and settlement. The importance of the corridor as a major transportation route linking Puget Sound to the north and the Columbia Willamette waterways to the south is emphasized with primary source observations. The study is based on both primary and secondary source materials housed in libraries throughout the Pacific Northwest and Canada. Among the sources include letters, journals, federal documents, periodicals, articles, drawings and monographs
