What happens when bridges, causeways, tunnels -- fixed links -- irrevocably connect islands to mainlands? Are "islandhood" and island ways of life threatened? Or are they saved by their stronger integration with the world at large? Good questions for Confederation Bridge's 10th anniversary. Bridging Islands is a critical interdisciplinary scoreboard of the pros and cons of bridging islands to mainlands. Among the internationally recognized contributors are Jean Didier Haché, Rennes, France; Stephen Royle, Queen's University, Belfast, Ireland; and Philip W. Conkling, founder and director, Island Institute, Rockland, Maine. They review the sociocultural, economic, and political impacts of fixed links on small island communities, with essays on Prince Edward Island's Confederation Bridge, Cape Breton's Canso Causeway, and islands in Quebec and Newfoundland, the Florida Keys, Ireland, France, Scotland, Sweden, and Singapore.Baldacchino, Godfrey is the author of 'Bridging Islands The Impacts of Fixed Links', published 2007 under ISBN 9781894838245 and ISBN 1894838246.
