In the Shadow of Freedom: Life on Board the Oil Tanker (Comentationes Scientiarum Socialium, 69)
Available from more sellers
203 pp., bibliography. A stereotypical image of freedom is that of a free-roving sailor who does not bend to the rules and expectations of life on land. How does this image fit into the modern shipworld? This work is the first ethnography written on modern Finnish ship's communities. It is also the first study to focus on the freedom discourses of sailors. It thus extends the study of freedom - which is usually associated with philosophy or political science - to the realm of ordinary people and an anthropology of freedom. 0.0.
