Shetland and Oil--Myths and Realities

Jonathan Wills (Author) 

So what happens to 17,000 people and 550 square miles of islands when they become the centre of attention for the media, big business and the government?

Here is one man's interpretation of events in Shetland during the past 15 years, based on experience as a crofter, boatman, journalist, editor, broadcaster, political activist, and former academic.
