Summary "Set against the background of momentous economic changes over the last decade, this collection of essays looks at the economic, political, and social circumstances that have led to the current crisis in rural Newfoundland. In this timely work, twelve social scientists explore outporters' ways of coping with economic uncertainty, the choices that they are now confronting, and the consequences of these choices in terms of sustaining livelihoods into the next generation and beyond." "Offering both general overviews and specific case studies drawn from recent research, the volume provides insight into the political economy of Newfoundland, the collapse of the fish stocks, and the effects of the crisis on outporters' occupational choices and migration decisions. Thought-provoking and rich in detail, this collection is the first to examine the interconnected problems and opportunities in rural Newfoundland in light of global economic and social changes."--Jacket
