People have asked Jane Nadel-Klein, Professor of Anthropology, Trinity College, Hartford, CT, USA, why an American with no Scottish roots was so interested in Scottish fisher-folk. Her book, Fishing for Heritage: Modernity and Loss along the Scottish Coast (2003, Berg Press) responds that ‘the fisher-folk are a powerful example of hard work, courage and commitment to community.’ The people of Ferryden, Anstruther, Buckie and Nairn, she says, ‘taught me what it means to have a way of life torn apart by economic inequalities and political indifference… about the power of heritage to sustain people in times of loss and change.’
