Land, Power and people in Scotland 1700 – 1900
Written by T.M. Devine

This collection of essays by the renowned historian Professor Tom Devine covers the great transformation of rural Scotland between the early eighteenth century and 1900 The drama and tragedy of Highland history during this period have attracted many authors, whereas the Lowland experience hardly any.This book redresses that balance and examines why this extraordinary era, assiciated with failure, famine and clearance in Gaeldom, is remembered as one of ‘improvement’ in the lowlands.
