Modern Scotland 1914-2000

Finlay, Richard J. (2005) Modern Scotland 1914-2000. Trafalgar Square. ISBN 186197308X

Full text not available in this repository.


This history of modern Scotland considers all the major themes of the century - whether working-class militancy or the rise of Scottish nationalism, poverty or social reconstruction, the Scottish cultural renaissance or popular culture. Moreover, it shows how these themes were played out in individual communities and affected the lives of Scotland's people. From the women who worked in munitions factories to the children in the school playgrounds, the cinema-goers of 1930s Aberdeen to the crofters of Knoydart who recently succeeded in buying their land, Richard Finlay offers a vivid picture of contemporary Scotland and the people who have shaped it.
