Social struggle at "La fin de siècle" -- Symbols of struggle : red flags, lace coiffes, and social class -- Episode not epoch : building Capitalism in the hinterland -- Working at sea -- Working ashore -- The difference a family makes -- Conclusion
"Small-scale, family fishing enterprises manage to persist despite a range of difficult economic and ecological changes and disruptions. Red Flags and Lace Coiffes is an ... ethnography that explores how and why family-based fishing enterprises continue in the face of what seem to be overwhelming odds. Using historical ethnography as a lens through which to understand how the fishers and their families of the Bigouden region in France have situated themselves over time, Charles R. Menzies argues that local identity plays an important role as global capitalist pressures force these fishing communities to reorganize or disappear entirely. Throughout, the book touches on key concepts such as identity, culture, globalization, kinship, work, the environment, and the economy."--Publisher's description
