This book explores the question of why fishing communities continue their struggle to survive, despite often calamitous changes in ecology and economy. Using historical ethnography as a lens through which to understand how fishers of the Bigouden region of France and their families have reinvented themselves, Menzies argues that local identity plays an important role in their perseverance as global capitalist pressures continually force them to reorganize or disappear entirely. Touching on many concepts that are fundamental to anthropology-culture, identity, kinship, work, political economy, and globalization-and filled with personal stories and warmth, this ethnography will be a welcome teaching tool for instructors and an enticing read for students.
