Format: Paperback
This book had me hooked. I felt that it was important to have a knowledge of certain important time periods and events in order to get the best out of it. T. C Smout brings to life politics and social issues in a way that opens the readers mind. It is a delicate balance between information and empathy that has been achieved perfectly by Smout. The issues of housing, liberalism and clearance were brought to life by this book. Smout changes a set of facts and opinions into worthy insight. After I had read it I felt disappointed that it was finished just like one might feel about a good novel.

A Century of the Scottish people is everything I hoped for. Having read and enjoyed T.M. Devine's The Scottish Nation 1700-2007, I wanted to fill in the picture with more detail in order to understand the kind of lives my ancestors lived in various parts of Scotland. T.C. Smout is a wonderfully well-informed scholar who also writes really well and, on occasion, reveals a good sense of humour. This book is a great read for anyone interested in Scottish history.

Having enjoyed the author's wonderful "History of the Scottish People 1560-1830", I just had to see what he had written on the next century. I recommend both works as very readable but accurate sources with lots of references to more academic works for anyone who wants to pursue more detail on a particular topic.A HISTORY OF THE SCOTTISH PEOPLE: 1560-1830.

I wanted to buy this book after having read a library copy. I ordered a second hand copy effectively for the cost of post and packing so was surprised to get it within a week and in as new condition, much better than the library copy. I'd be happy to order second hand again.
