Marginal Adaptations and Modernization in Newfoundland

A Study of Strategies and Implications in the Resettlement and Redevelopment of Outport Fishing Communities

Cato Wadel (Author) 

Based on fieldwork in the late 1960s, this study examines the economic and social changes that came to rural Newfoundland since Confederation with Canada in 1949. What kinds of decisions were made by the villagers regarding their future? How were they made? What decisions were (and are) made for them?
