Land for What? Land for Whom?: Senses of Place and Conflict in the Scottish Highlands (Paperback)

UK delivery within 5 days


A thoughtful celebration of the Highlands of Scotland, both its people, including visitors who love the area, and its nature, Land for What? Land for Whom? is based on years of detailed ethnographic research in the Cairngorms. Exploring the many and varied conflicts between livelihood, recreation and conservation, Bonnie VandeSteeg expresses the views, concerns and feelings of people in the area, particularly those who often go unheard. She places them at the front of her study and considers how their differences might be overcome to ensure the future well-being of both people and planet.

Dr Bonnie VandeSteeg lives in London but is still a regular visitor to Badenoch and Strathspey. She was a teacher for over 30 years and taught many subjects in a range of educational institutions, including English as a Foreign Language in adult education, economics for the Open University and latterly A-level philosophy and anthropology in a London sixth form college. Her anthropology studies and research were sandwiched between these work commitments. Retirement has brought time to devote to writing and involvement in campaigning on issues discussed in her book such as land use, the environment, housing, and improving local community participation in decision-making. She also continues her hillwalking and climbing interests and is an active member of a number of mountaineering clubs, including the Strathspey Mountain Club.
