9780198713630: The Oxford Handbook of Modern Scottish History (Oxford Handbooks)

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 in an international historical experience 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.

Review:


"Impressive on a number of levels...[The authors] handle the all-consuming relationship with England in a refreshingly contextual fashion and not as the traditional and false dichotomy of recent times. Critically, the contributors also provide thoughts and direction to drive future research, thus making this impressive work a living document and not just a passive account of the past...[A] timely, approachable, and professional look at Scotland in the modern era."--CHOICE
