"From being an important source of food for coastal communities, fishing acquired, from medieval times onwards, a great commercial importance, and the leaders of Scottish society always desired to make more of the fisheries." "In the 19th century the Scottish herring fisheries rose to a position of world leadership, and fishing continues to be a prominent Scottish interest right up to the day of the European Community." "In tracing the development of the fisheries the author has involved his extensive research as well as building on previous work, and the text is addressed to the general reader as well as to the academic." "The book is much enhanced by numerous diagrams and maps, together with a plate section featuring more than thirty reproductions of unusual photographs, fully captioned and related to the text."--Jacket." ;
