Typically Texels

On the internet I found a interesting book on the queer habits of Texel's people and their attitude towards their environment: Braving Troubled Waters: Sea Change in a Dutch Fishing Community by Rob van Ginkel (2009).

Leafing through the book shows many nice anekdotes about the engagement of Texel' fishermen with the limited resources of the marine world, as well as the capricious markets and political interventions that govern the fishing industry in the past and in present days. More specifically, it focuses on the owner-operators, deckhands, fishermen’s wives, and others involved in the fisheries of Texel. The book portraits the community at the interface of local, national, and supranational processes. So, it matches the fourth meeetings' topic nicely!
