"Drawing on a vast amount of highly original research, Devine has produced an authoritative exploration of modern Scottish history - from the union of 1707 to devolution in 1999. Along the way he covers the Jacobite rebellions, the Scottish enlightenment, industrialization, the clearances, religion, and the road to devolution, as well as the global diaspora of the Scots, the impact of immigrant communities, the lives of Scottish women, the changing Scottish identity, and the nation during the world wars. Throughout, the story of Scotland is set against the background of British, European, and world history."--Jacket

"'The Great Hunger' in nineteenth-century Ireland was one of the great human tragedies of modern times. Almost a million perished and a further two million emigrated in the wake of potato blight and economic collapse.

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

13 editions published between 2011 and 2016 in English and held by 319 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 by T. M Devine( Book )

15 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 284 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

Scottish emigration and Scottish society : proceedings of the Scottish Historical Studies Seminar, University of Strathclyde, 1990-91 by Scottish Historical Studies Seminar( Book )

10 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Emigration of the Scottish people is one of the key themes of Scottish history. For centuries the Scots have had a long tradition of emigration to Europe, England, and, in modern times, to North America and Australasia. Few English-speaking societies over the last three centuries have been untouched by the social, religious, economic and cultural impact of Scottish settlement. This book of essays, the proceedings of the 1990-91 Scottish Historical Studies Seminar at the University of Strathclyde, explores some of the many facets of the Scottish diaspora with special reference to the period from the early eighteenth century. Two introductory papers examine the general influences on Scottish mobility and address the puzzling question of why Scotland had one of the highest rates of out-migration of any society in western Europe while at the same time achieving rapid economic growth, structural change, urbanisation and industrialisation. Further essays consider such specific themes as regional variations in emigration trends, the migration of Scottish businessmen to Australia, landlordism and Highland emigration, the dynamics of Border mobility and assisted emigration." "The collection as a whole should appeal to those with an interest in Scottish history, the 'Scot' abroad and the story of the peopling of the New World by an important and influential ethnic group. The contributors are all historians and sociologists at the forefront of Scottish emigration studies."--Jacket
