Abstract

Not surprisingly, a majority of GCSE and A-level geography courses in UK schools assume a metropolitan European viewpoint. They focus attention upon the European heartland of dense population, major economic activities and increasingly centralised organisations and say little about the continent's marginal communities. Even more rarely do they discuss such communities from those communities' own viewpoints. Finding information about marginal areas can be difficult. This article presents case-studies from three Atlantic island groups which illustrate differing degrees of freedom achieved by isolated communities from the dependence which has dominated the experience of all peripheral Europeans during the present century.
