This book provides a strong summary of the events, which took place in Glasgow at the end of the First World War. To me the book raises an intresting question regarding whether or not the activies on the Clyde were truly 'red' or was it simply a misunderstanding.

Spare us from historians writing about history. The story of Red Clydeside should be gripping, but in the hands of these academics it is mind-numbing. Fair enough if historians are writing for each others, as they evidently are in this volume, but please don't put the material on the market as sutitable for general readers. It isn't. Recently on Radio Four I heard a couple of professional historians complaining about the number of history books on bookstore shelves that have been written by non-hisotrians, often journalists. This book is a good example of why that is. It is simply choking with academic-ese. With few exceptions, academics should not be allowed near a keyboard until the have taken a creative writing course.
