Abstract

In this book, life in peripheral communities is
examined from a wide range of research perspectives.
Scholars studying social, ecological,
cultural and economic aspects, from prehistoric
to modern times, contribute to create a comparative
perspective on life in peripheries. Some
of the articles focus on forest communities in
northern Sweden, but studies from other parts of
the world form a substantial part of this volume.
The publication is the outcome of the multidisciplinary
conference Peripheral Communities:
Crisis, Continuity and Long-Term Survival, which
took place in the small Swedish village Ängersjö
in August 14–17, 2003.
Central themes of the conference were:
•• Resource management in peripheries
•• Ecology – technology – local knowledge
•• Social organisation – property relations, inheritance
patterns and gender
•• Socio-economic strategies in internal and
external relations
•• Motives to live/stay in peripheral communities
•• History and culture – an asset and/or a drawback
•• Local political culture and the public sphere
•• Conflict resolution – the use of legal and local
systems
•• Value systems and traditions
•• Relations to state and market
•• Diaspora, collaborative communities and networks
Host of the conference was the interdisciplinary
research project Flexibility as Tradition:
Culture and Subsistence in the Boreal Forests
of Northern Sweden, funded by the Bank of
Sweden Tercentenary Foundation. The project
has studied the flexible, composite, and changeable
character of economic activities and
resource utilization in the forest districts over
a long temporal perspective.
