DESCRIPTION:
New Edition - An anthology of 2,000 years of Scottish history. "In a year which will see the Scots vote on independence, this book is a timely reminder of their country's fascinating past". (Independent). "History caught on the hoof and the wing by those who were actually there - a brilliant selection". (Andrew Marr). A vivid, wide-ranging and engrossing account of Scotland's history, composed of eye-witness accounts by those who experienced it first-hand. Contributors range from Tacitus, Mary Queen of Scots and Oliver Cromwell to Adam Smith, David Livingstone and Billy Connolly. These include key historic moments - ranging from Bannockburn and Flodden to the SNP parliamentary victory in 2007 - along with a vast array of wonderfully readable insights into the everyday life of Scotland through the millennia. This is living, accesible history told by crofters, criminals, servants, house-wives, poets, journalists, nurses, politicians, novelists, prisoners, comedians, sportsmen and many more. "An unqualified triumph, superb, a real page-turner ...what a stirring, dramatic, poignant story it has been". (Alexander McCall Smith, Spectator). "Fascinating and very valuable. Goring gives us vivid snapshots of Scottish life and history from Neolithic times ...should find a place in every Scottish home". (Allan Massie, Scotsman). Rosemary Goring took a degree in Economics and Social History at St Andrews Univ
