With more than 500 photos of foreign and domestic vessels, crews, ports, shipyards, and modes of processing fish at seaaboard ships that were part of Newfoundland and Labrador's collective hist ory, 'The Grand Banks' is a full and impartial history of the magnitude of this fishing effort." - from rear.

APOSTLE, Richard and Gene BARRETT. Emptying Their Nets : Small Capital and Rural industrialization in the Nova Scotia Fishing Industry. Toronto : University of Toronto Press, (1992). Pp (8),[ix]xvii,(5),[3]-396. Tables. Maps.8vo, card covers. Also with contributions by Pauline Barber, Kevin J. Barr ett, Anthony Davis, Marie Giasson, Leonard Kasdan, Leigh Mazany and Lawrence Willett. "The day of the independent fisher is done, according to conventional wisdom. There is a widespread conviction today that the survival of small capital in the fishing industry is anachronistic or, at best, exceptjonal, and therefore relatively unimportant in the grander scheme of things. Richard Apostle and Gene Barrett take a different view. They argue that thedifferentiated structure of the industry, while rooted in a number of reso urce-centred conditions, stems from a range of socioeconomic factors which the fishery shares with other industrial sectors. It is the overall constellation of events and forces that continually regenerates a. structural basis for small capital and frustrates the centralization ana concentration of capital. They suggest mat a variety of types ot small capital must bc distinguished, each with particular internal structures - for example, relationsto the harvesting sector, large-scale capital, and the market. While the c oastal zone fishery is vital to the small capital processing sector, family-based organization, intermediate technology, surplus labour, and communitystructures are central to this structure as well. They argue as well that a populist ideology rooted in individualism and free enterprise emanates from this structure and represents its major weak point in terms of concertedaction during times of crisis. The culmination of a six-year research proj ect, this work incorporates primary research data collected through surveysof plant managers, fishers, plant workers and brokers, four community stud ies, and financial analysis of fish plant operations. It identifies variousstrands and patterns that make up the fabric of rural community, revealing the complex interconnections among household, class, gender, and community and the structuring of economy and society.."

The work of a group of researchers from Canada, Norway, and the United States, it examines the implications of common market integration, privatized resource management, and small business development policies for fishery-dependant communities in terms of long-term sustainability and participatory democracy. The book is brokeninto three sections: an examination of the economic and institutional hist ory of the fisheries in Norway and Atlantic Canada, a study of the regulatory regimes used in the fisheries of these two regions, and an analysis of reactions in three communities, two in Canada [Sambro, Nova Scotia and Fogo Island, Newfoundland] and one in Norway [Bugoynes], to the decline and collapse of fish stocks. Comparative, multidisciplinary, and multinational in approach, it is a major contribution to the literature on fishing regulations, the role of the state, and resource development in the North Atlantic." -from the dustjacket.

Since prehistoric times, this great sea has provided both a barrier and a bridge for the people who live around it. Modernscientific and historical research is building new bridges and breaking do wn old barriers. In this fascinating book Sarah Arenson uses the latest research in maritime studies - history, marine science, archaeology, social anthropology, marine engineering and geophysics - to explore the unique contribution that the Mediterranean has made to modern civilization. For this sea, the sea in the midst of the earth, was the heart of the old world. Asia,Africa and Europe converge upons its shores. The book begins by describing some of the creation myths and the earlies encounters of men and sea, draw ing on the astonish finds of underwater archaeology. The study of fishing and coastal industries show the evolution of peoples living on the water's edge.

ARIAS, Ron. Five Against the Sea : A True Story of Courage and Survival. New York : New American Library, (1989). First Printing. Pp. (10),1-226,(2) +8 p. of plates. 8vo, black cloth spine with black paper covered boards. 14 2 days lost at sea. "It was January 19, 1988. The waters were calm and the skies cloudless as five fishermen set off on a week-long trip along the Costa Rican coast. Five days later, their twenty-nine-foot wooden craft was foundering against thirty-foot waves as a dreaded north wind - El Norte - struck with full force, setting them adrift in the perilous waters of the Pacific. This was only the beginning of a five-month nightmare that would drivethe men to the very limits of human endurance - a terrifying odyssey that ended in June with a dramatic rescue at sea 550 miles southeast of Hawaii, a journey of 4,500 miles. This is the uncredible true story of survival against almost insurmountable odds. With no radio or navigational equipment, and only a makeshift spear for catching fish, the five men fought sesperate bouts of hunger and thirst, bailing night and day to keep their leaky vessel from gong under." - from the dj. Very good in dust jacket. 20.00
