A People's History of Scotland looks beyond the kings and
queens, the battles and bloody defeats of the past. It captures the
history that matters today, stories of freedom fighters,
suffragettes, the workers of Red Clydeside, and the hardship and
protest of the treacherous Thatcher era.
With riveting storytelling, Chris Bambery recounts the struggles for
nationhood. He charts the lives of Scots who changed the world, as
well as those who fought for the cause of ordinary people at home,
from the poets Robbie Burns and Hugh MacDiarmid to campaigners such
as John Maclean and Helen Crawfurd.
This is a passionate cry for more than just independence but also for
a nation based on social justice.
