My major research undertakings have focused on the theme of human creativity in the broadest sense and its long-range implications in Pacific Rim regions. How people and places have interacted in the evolution and continuation of the worldwide pan-religious phenomenon of pilgrimage; how visionaries in the manufacturing and service sectors in Japan have formulated and then actualized their business designs in the domestic and international arenas; how the creative energy of Canadians has shaped the distinctive development of the nation; how the future-focused geo-political agendas of Spanish, British, French, and Americans moulded the regional character and destiny of Central America; how the aspirations of scattered colonial groups were engaged in the emergence of Australia are topics explored in my academic books listed below.
