Newfoundland Fishermen in the Age of Industry

A Sociology of Economic Dualism


A Norwegian anthropologist gives his version of the 'developing' Newfoundland economy. The analysis focuses on the political restrictions on economic development, and on the shortcomings of decision-making processes. The result shows the strikingly dualistic nature of Newfoundland's economy.


In its new, more accessible, form it is a welcome addition to the growing body of analyses treating man/sea relationships, in general, and the anthropology of Canada's maritime provinces, in particular.
