Although Fishing for Heritage is a scholarly book, it still remains accessible to its subjects, should be required reading for those involved with the heritage industry, and can be recommended to anyone else with an interest in Scotland's past and future. Sara Marsh, Times Literary Supplement An important contribution to contemporary anthropology and especially for Scottish studies. The Scots Magazine Industrial Archaeologists and heritage professionals should take note of 'Fishing for Hertiage' as a valuable study of dogged cultural survival in industrial communities and the role of sites and artifacts in the local consciousness and sense of identity. Industrial Archaeology Journal Jane Nadel-Klein has produced a book about the fisherfolk of the east coast of Scotland that is very informative and is truly well worth reading.
