The Centre Of The World At The Edge of A Contenient: Cultural Studies of Cape Breton Island

and

While Cape Breton’s culture is typically depicted as a scenic snapshot of Scottish fiddlers and tartans, the essay in this book go beyond this tourism image. Focusing on pastimes, the arts, community, family and identity, the authors have interpreted the ways that cultural practices act to maintain a cohesive and rich social world on this singular island. The themes in this book offer Cape Bretoners a glance at themselves and provide visitors with unsung sketches of Cape Breton life.
