Famed Canadian industrialist K. C. Irving has always been considered the most important figure of the Irving family business empire-an empire of such dominance in its region that only America's Morgans or Rockefellers merit a valid comparison. K. C. was indeed the pivot man in a relentless relay of work now spanning more than fourteen decades. Twenty-first Century Irvings leads us through the three generations left in K. C.'s wake, a dozen or more individuals following the Irving tradition of hard work, family loyalty, and an awe-inspiring attention to detail. These contemporary Irvings are trying to honour his legacy while also attempting to cast a kinder, gentler Irving image, which those close to the family claim has always been a part of the Irvings' rural New Brunswick heritage. Twenty-first Century Irvings explores the modern family business, the powerful players behind its continuing success, and the myths that are spread about this wealthy empire. Author Harvey Sawler exposes the truths behind those myths, and predicts the transformation of the family, like the Rockefellers and the Morgans, from industrialists to philanthropists. A business story, a family story, and a Maritime story, this is a book for anyone interested in or affected by the Irving empire. Twenty-First Century Irvings was shortlisted for the AIBA Booksellers' Choice Award.
