Scottish Life and Society Volume 8 : Transport and Communication, Hardback Book

Scottish Life and Society Volume 8 : Transport and Communication Hardback

Edited by Kenneth Veitch

Part of the A Compendium of Scottish series


The movement of people, goods, services, ideas and information has dictated the nature of everyday life in Scotland since the earliest times, and has helped to determine the boundaries and character of the nation itself.

This multi-author volume explores a variety of topics on the broad theme of transport and communications.

The chapters are divided into five thematic sections: water transport, land transport, air transport, communications, and transport and communications in their wider contexts.

The chronological and geographical coverage is wide, ranging from the birlinns of the medieval western seaboard to aviation in the Northern Isles, and a variety of approaches to the study of the subject is offered.

Each chapter can stand alone, but taken together they indicate the profound influence that transport and communications have on Scottish life and society.
