Overview

"Castles, lochs, seascapes. Coastal Scotland is one of the world's most romanticized tourist destinations, yet it is in the midst of severe economic decline. The North Atlantic fisheries crisis has hit Scottish communities hard and local fisherfolk are faced with chronic insecurity, anxiety over the decline of fishing and doubts about their cultural survival. The decline of this traditional industry has been accompanied by growing tourism along Scottish shores. Fishing villages are marketed for tourist consumption and culture has become a commodity." Drawing upon fieldwork, novels, folk music and travel literature, Nadel-Klein explores how these influences have affected locals' sense of identity and presence within a modern European nation.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Although Fishing for Heritage is a scholarly book, it still remains accessible to its subjects, should be required reading for those involved with the heritage industry, and can be recommended to anyone else with an interest in Scotland's past and future." —Times Literary Supplement

"An important contribution to contemporary anthropology and especially for Scottish studies." —The Scots Magazine

"Jane Nadel-Klein has produced a book about the fisherfolk of the east coast of Scotland that is very informative and is truly well worth reading." —Peter Bruce, Honarary Life Member , Buckie District Fishing Heritage Museum
