In A Shifting Shore, Alice Garner traces the ways fisherfolk, bathers, investors, and engineers understood, claimed, and remade the shores of the Bassin d\'Arcachon, a prime fishing and oyster-farming site in southwestern France, over the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Garner\'s interest in the coastline - a zone that resists all attempts at definition - shapes this generously illustrated book. Rather than taking a straightforward chronological approach to the settlement and evolution of the towns of Arcachon and La Teste, Garner investigates the development of the Bassin d\'Arcachon\'s southern shores with the aim of recovering something of the \"lived space\" experienced by locals and visitors.\"<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0.<\/div>
