The period after the Second World War in Shetland saw a continuing decrease in population and opportunities for the young increasingly limited.

The number of native Shetlanders fell to only 17,000.

However, with the arrival of offshore oil in the years following 1970, the problems of managing new Shetland (housing, road building, education expansion, social provision and protection of the environment) fell largely on Shetland Islands Council.

This book details the events of that era in Shetland's history.
