5.0 out of 5 stars Irish, 23 Aug. 2012

This is as complete a history of the Irish in Scotland as I have ever read. The background stories help the reader to get a feeling for the conditions of the poor in Ireland as well as Scotland. It is both well written and very readable. One of my best purchases ever..

This was a really great book, easy to read, but with none of the fantasy stuff you usually get. The stories told were compelling. They were all supported by (often official) documentation. I'd recommend this book to anyone who is confused by what is happening in the world and who only gets the superficial news coverage. The writer is up there with the best, such as John Pilger.

A simple book which can give nerds like me hours of fun and entertainment. Reading it starts with s poser which leads to another and finishes when I tire of asking myself "I wonder what...." Well worth buying

Great book for a great camera. I liked the look of the camera, bought the book and THEN I bought the camera. Both the book and the camera were first class and delivery was super fast

This was a very useful book which my son used to help focus his mind when preparing for his GCSE. It contains a lot of useful, relevant information on specific subjects.

An absolutely brilliant book. It brings into our understanding just what REAL life was like in Greenwich Villiage and surroundings during the 60s. A great, great read.
