Scotland and the British Empire by John M MacKenzie( Book )

14 editions published between 2011 and 2017 in English and held by 523 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The extraordinary influence of Scots in the British Empire has long been recognised. As administrators, settlers, temporary residents, professionals, plantation owners, and as military personnel, they were strikingly prominent in North America, the Caribbean, Australasia, South Africa, India, and colonies in South-East Asia and Africa. Throughout these regions they brought to bear distinctive Scottish experience as well as particular educational, economic, cultural, and religious influences. Moreover, the relationship between Scots and the British Empire had a profound effect upon many aspects of Scottish society. This volume of essays, written by notable scholars in the field, examines the key roles of Scots in central aspects of the Atlantic and imperial economies from the eighteenth to the twentieth centuries, in East India Company rule in India, migration and the preservation of ethnic identities, the environment, the army, missionary and other religious activities, the dispersal of intellectual endeavours, and in the production of a distinctive literature rooted in colonial experience. Making use of recent, innovative research, the chapters demonstrate that an understanding of the profoundly inter-active relationship between Scotland and the British Empire is vital both for the understanding of the histories of that country and of many territories of the British Empire. -- Book jacket

The Oxford handbook of modern Scottish history( Book )

15 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 429 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over the last three decades major advances in research and scholarship have transformed understanding of the Scottish past. In this landmark study some of the most eminent writers on the subject, together with emerging new talents, have combined to produce a large-scale volume which reconsiders in fresh and illuminating ways the classic themes of the nation's history since the sixteenth century as well as a number of new topics which are only now receiving detailed attention. Such major themes as the Reformation, the Union of 1707, the Scottish Enlightenment, clearances, industrialisation, empire, emigration, and the Great War are approached from novel and fascinating perspectives, but so too are such issues as the Scottish environment, myth, family, criminality, the literary tradition, and Scotland's contemporary history. All chapters contain expert syntheses of current knowledge, but their authors also stand back and reflect critically on the questions which still remain unanswered, the issues which generate dispute and controversy, and sketch out where appropriate the agenda for future research. The Handbook also places the Scottish experience firmly into an international historical perspective with a considerable focus on the age-old emigration of the Scottish people, the impact of successive waves of immigrants to Scotland, and the nation's key role within the British Empire. The overall result is a vibrant and stimulating review of modern Scottish history: essential reading for students and scholars alike

10 editions published between 1994 and 1999 in English and held by 274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the eighteenth century the old peasant society of lowland Scotland disappeared to be replaced by a new order of capitalist farmers and landless labourers. It was one of the most fundamental changes in modern Scottish history, but has never before been studied in detail."--BOOK JACKET. "In this groundbreaking book, T. M. Devine uses original and extensive archive material from four representative counties to explore this social revolution - a revolution unparalleled in Western Europe for its speed and scale. He compares developments in the Highlands of Scotland and in agrarian England, and covers a wide range of issues, including: the seventeenth-century rural social structure; the eighteenth-century agrarian economy; landlordism and improvement; the evolution of the tenant farming class; and the dispossession of the cottar class. It is an important and controversial book on a subject which has received inadequate study in the past."--BOOK JACKET
