Overview

Gezelius (Norwegian Agricultural Economics Research Institute) seeks to identify the reasons that fishermen choose to comply with or violate state regulations concerning the Atlantic fisheries. Organized as a comparative case study, the text examines the dynamics of compliance in two communities--one in Norway and one in Newfoundland--which depend on inshore and near-shore fishing and which are currently affected by government restrictions on fish harvesting. It addresses the relationship between collective morality and self-interest, and describes combinations of normative and strategic action. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
