Synopsis: The Monterey coast, home to an acclaimed aquarium and the setting for John Steinbeck's classic novel Cannery Row, was also the stage for a historical junction of industry and tourism. Shaping the Shoreline looks at the ways in which Monterey has formed, and been formed by, the tension between labor and leisure.

Connie Y. Chiang examines Monterey's development from a seaside resort into a working-class fishing town and, finally, into a tourist attraction again. Through the subjects of work, recreation, and environment -- the intersections of which are applicable to communities across the United States and abroad -- she documents the struggles and contests over this magnificent coastal region. By tracing Monterey's shift from what was once the literal Cannery Row to an iconic hub that now houses an aquarium in which nature is replicated to attract tourists, the interactions of people with nature continues to change.

Drawing on histories of immigration, unionization, and the impact of national and international events, Chiang explores the reciprocal relationship between social and environmental change. By integrating topics such as race, ethnicity, and class into environmental history, Chiang illustrates the idea that work and play are not mutually exclusive endeavors.

From the Publisher: "For two decades, scholars have been calling for environmental histories that pay as much attention to changes in human social relationships as to changes in the natural world. Shaping the Shoreline brilliantly demonstrates the value of such an approach by exploring with great subtlety how the curiously intermingled worlds of commercial fishing and elite tourism created in Monterey one of the most celebrated and sought-after communities on the coast of California." - William Cronon, University of Wisconsin

"Today the Monterey Bay Aquarium publicly embraces both fish and tourism within the confines of an old cannery. The two histories have coesixted for years, and they sapwned a diverse and divided society. Therein lies Connie Chiang's fascinating and revealing story of the people of Monterey and the sea that gave them life." - Richard White, Stanford University

"A compelling narrative that is, at once, a social history of Monterey and an environmental history of the region that begins at the turn of the century and ends in the present day." - Carol McKibben, Director, Seaside History Project and author of Beyond Cannery Row

"Shaping the Shoreline brilliantly explores - and explodes - the dualities that have long defined not only Monterey but also American thinking about the natural world: work vs. play, white vs. non-white, tourism vs. industry, nature as spectacle vs. nature as worksite." - Karl Jacoby, Brown University

Book Description University of Washington Press. Paperback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, Shaping the Shoreline: Fisheries and Tourism on the Monterey Coast, Connie Y. Chiang, William Cronon, Monterey, California is home to the hugely successful Monterey Bay Aquarium and provided the setting for John Steinbeck's classic novel Cannery Row, yet the city's coastline was also the stage for a great shift in the junction of industry and tourism. From the late-nineteenth-century immigrant fisheries and the sardine boom of the interwar years and World War II, to the Southern Pacific Railroad's promotional campaigns and recent post-industrial tourism, Shaping the Shoreline looks at the ways in which Monterey has formed, and been formed by, the tension between labour and leisure. Connie Y. Chiang examines Monterey's development from a seaside resort to a working-class fishing town and, finally, to a tourist attraction again. Through the subjects of work, recreation, and environment - the intersections of which are applicable to communities across the United States and abroad - she documents the struggles and contests over this coastal region. By tracing Monterey's shift from what was once the literal Cannery Row to an iconic hub that now houses an aquarium in which nature is replicated to attract tourists, the interactions of people with nature continues to change. Encompassing histories of immigration, unionization, and the impact of world events and national demands as well as commercial and nonprofit initiatives on localities, Chiang explores the reciprocal relationship between social and environmental change. By integrating topics such as race, ethnicity, and class into environmental history, Chiang opens the door to a new understanding of the idea that work and play are not mutually exclusive endeavours. This book will appeal to academics interested in labour history, ethnic history, environmental studies, and western history, as well as environmentalists, planners of local, state, and federal government programs, and members of the general public interested in the future of their communities. Connie Y. Chiang is assistant professor of history and environmental studies at Bowdoin College. Bookseller Inventory # B9780295991399
