Myth and Materiality in a Woman's World

Shetland 1800-2000

Lynn Abrams

Published by Manchester University Press

Gender in History MUP

Shetland has a history unique in Europe, for over the past two centuries it was a place where women dominated the family, economy, and the cultural imagination. Women ran households and crofts without men. Reconstructing this 'woman's world' from fragments of cultural experience captured in written and oral sources, this book will appeal to scholars in the fields of social and cultural history, social anthropology, gender and women's studies.
