The chapters on theory might be tough going for the average reader, but the chapters that convey his research findings are quite accessible and interesting, especially for anyone interested in Nova Scotian fishing communities. Above and beyond the educational implications discussed in the book, one is left with a distinct feeling of sadness at the loss of fishing as a predominant way of life in this particular Nova Scotian community.
I would recommend this book for anyone interested in learning more about Nova Scotian rural communities, or about the state of rural education in a fast changing, ever more global world.

What Corbett does is offer an original and compelling understanding of rural education. A must read for anyone in the sociology of education - And anyone interested in a great application of Bourdieu's theories of symbolic capital.
