9781841588537: The Making of the Crofting Community

This book has been seminal in bringing to the fore the injustices that have been inflicted on the Highlands in the name of government and landlord—injustices often lost in the name of dry statistics and academic balance. Written by a man who has gone on to become both an award-winning historian of the Highlands and a leading figure in the public life of the region, The Making of the Crofting Community has attracted praise, inspired debate, and provoked outrage and controversy over the years. This book remains necessary to challenge standard academic interpretations of the Highland past. Having long been one of the classics of Birlinn's John Donald list, this revised and updated new edition includes a substantial new preface and an extensive reworking of the existing text.

Review:

'Magnificent, marvelously comprehensive, just and profound' - Sorley MacLean, Time Literary Supplement 'Written with controlled passion and savage exactness' - The Herald 'One of the most significant Scottish books of its generation' - Scottish Historical Review 'The fiercely quarried raw material and seething anger that shaped and informed The Making of the Crofting Community are ingredients not easily improved upon' - --Roger Hutchison, West Highland Free Press
