Clans and Clearance


Product Description
Product Details


Sorley MacLean, frequently called "the greatest Gaelic poet of the 20th century", to whom the author had sent part of the work, wrote on 29 August 1994: "Your 'MacKinnon clearances' fills me with hope that I will live to see your whole history of the Clearances published in parts or as a whole. It will supersede everything written on the Clearances at all times and places."

Andrew Simmons, Editorial Manager, Birlinn publishers: "It is an extraordinarily impressive work."

Emma Brennan, Manchester University Press: [There is a] "clear authorial voice through which a real enthusiasm for the subject is very effectively communicated".

Dr Lester Crook, I. B. Tauris publishers: "I appreciate that so many years of detailed and meticulous research and huge reading have gone into this project, also deep consideration of history and much reflection."

David Paterson, Photographer, author of "Glens of Silence" (with David Craig, Birlinn, Edinburgh): "May I first congratulate you on your extraordinarily scholarly, open-minded and thorough approach to The Clearances."
