Gaelic Scotland : The Transformation of a Culture Region Paperback / softback

Part of the Routledge Library Editions: Human Geography series

Description

This book, originally published in 1988, examines the Highlands and Islands of Scotland over several centuries and charts their cultural transformation from a separate region into one where the processes of anglicisation have largely succeeded.

It analyses the many aspects of change including the policies of successive governments, the decline of the Gaelic language, the depressing of much of the population into peasantry and the clearances.
