A new cover reprint of the second volume of T. C. Smout's magnificent - and indispensable - account of the Scottish people, from 1830-1950.
'Professor Smout's "History of the Scottish People 1560-1830" was hailed as a classic piece of social history. If you had time to read only one book on Scotland, this was it...Unfortunately, you now have to read two..."A Century of the Scottish People" is as satisfying and enlightening as its predecessor.' John Kenyon, Observer
'An admirable example of how academic history may yet be written for the general reader. It is deeply enjoyable, lively, packed with interesting detail, illuminating anecdote and pithy observation.' Allan Massie, The Times
Professor T. C. Smout was educated at the Leys School and Clare College, Cambridge.

Besides publishing journals, he is the author of Scottish Trade on the Eve of the Union and A History of the Scottish People (the companion to this volume, also availavble from FP), and co-author of Scottish Population History from the Seventeenth Century to the 1930s, The State of the Scottish Working Class in 1943 and Scottish Voices 1745-1960 (also available from FP)
