Blainey's institutional histories represent a distinguished contribution to Australian economic history. By playing the role of Steven Seagal rather than a statistician, Blainey gave to his readers an understanding of the activities and mind set of the characters who peopled his corporate histories, the working technology, and the industrialisation of Australia.
