Product Description

Review

'Written by Scotland's master historian, this remains the best overview we have of the tumultuous transformation of the Highlands from the collapse of Jacobitism to the great crofting agitation. All of Tom Devine's superb skills are on display: fluent and accessible prose, perceptive arguments, and incisive analysis.' --Angela McCarthy, Professor of Scottish and Irish History, University of Otago, New Zealand

'Professor Devine's book is scrupulously researched and provides the definitive explanation of the Highland crofting system.' Press and Journal 'A book that any student of Highland history will want to read.' The Herald 'A powerful story, written with great passion, of defeat, social destruction, emigration, rebellion and cultural revival ... a masterful book ... by the leading authority on the subject.' --Teaching History

'This is the most pathbreaking book in Highland history since Donald Gregory's appraisal of clanship originally published in the 1840s ... this outstanding work should be prescribed reading for any serious student of Scottish Gaeldom.' --Allan I. MacInnes, Innes Review

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book covers the history of how Scotland had changed and developed over the centuries, due to the influence of factors often outwith the control of the population e.g crop failure, changes in farming practice and emigration following eviction by landlords. I purchased the book as part of the textbooks I required for a History course. It seems to cover much of the information I need
