Shetland and Oil--Myths and Realities
Price: CDN$51.95
"The irony of the North Sea allegedly was that the tyrant which bestrode it was the Shetland County Council, a tiny group of home-spun farmers led by a 'Fuehrer' who had reportedly hornswoggled some of the biggest multinationals and most sophisticated leaders in Britain out of terms which would make Scottish Nationalists pale with envy."--A Place in the Sun

So what does happen to 17,000 people and 550 square miles of islands when they become the centre of attention for the media, big business and the government?

Here is one man's interpretation of events in Shetland during the past 15 years, based on experience as a crofter, boatman, journalist, editor, broadcaster, political activist, and former academic.
