Product description


A superb book ... Anybody interested in Scottish history needs to read it

(Andrew Marr Sunday Times)

The definitive word for an academic generation at least on this most controversial of topics in Scottish history ... Dramatic (Herald Scotland)

Persuasive... A necessary book (Scotsman)

Powerful ... admirable lucidity ... important. (Ewen A Cameron Irish Times)

If Sir Tom Devine hadn't chosen to be a historian, he'd have made a great historical novelist. That choice may have been a loss to literature, but The Scottish Clearances: A History of the Dispossessed, is worth it. The scope of this book - the Lowlands, the Highlands and the diaspora from the 17th century to the 20th - is impressive, and the detail and depth of knowledge displayed are remarkable - but what's truly amazing about it is how damn readable it is. (Diana Gabaldon Telegraph)

At the end of this superb book, a much more nuanced picture emerges of what might be called the great demographic revolution of Scotland. (David Aaronovitch The Times)

Scotland's foremost historian ... a major publication. (Kathleen Jamie New Statesman)

About the Author

T. M. Devine has written four books for Penguin: The Scottish Nation, Scotland's Empire, To the Ends of the Earth and Independence or Union. He is Sir William Fraser Professor Emeritus of Scottish History and Palaeography at the University of Edinburgh. In 2001 he was awarded the Royal Gold Medal, Scotland's supreme academic accolade, and has won all three major prizes for Scottish historical research. He was knighted in 2014 for services to the study of Scottish history. In 2018 he received the UK Parliament's All Party History and Archives Group Lifetime Achievement Award for Historical Studies.
