Product description

Review

"The tragic experience of the Highlanders during the Clearances . . . has been well documented, while the Lowland experience has been relatively overlooked. Professor Tom Devine redresses this balance in his book, examining why both parts of Scotland responded so differently to the transformation of rural Scotland." --"Scottish Art News"

About the Author

Professor Tom Devine, OBE, FBA was educated at Strathclyde University, Glasgow where he graduated with first class honours in History in 1968 followed by a PhD and D.Litt. He rose through the academic ranks from assistant lecturer to Deputy Principal of the University in 1992. In 1998 he accepted the Directorship of the centre for Irish and Scottish Studies at Aberdeen, where he is also Glucksman Professor of Irish & Scottish Studies. In early 2006, he assumed the Sir William Fraser Chair of Scottish History at the University of Edinburgh, widely acknowledged to be the world's premier Chair of Scottish History. In a unique arrangement he will also continue to hold his Aberdeen university professorship. He is the author or editor of some two dozen books including international best seller The Scottish Nation (1999).

Not easy to read. You need to concentrate hard if you are not academically interested. Helps to understand the pressures which made people become enslaved or transported by landowners, and how some survived to say it was worth all the pain.

Great, apposite subject matter, authoritatively presented, with comprehensive detail. I could have done with a shorter, summarised version.
