History Of Scotland
As a partner in the British Empire, Scotland began the 20th century
with an advanced economy and a world-beating heavy industry. But in the
closing decades its sense of Britishness was in doubt and a Scottish
Parliament sat in Edinburgh for the first time since 1707. Charting
Scotland's darkest century, Neil Oliver discovers a country driven to
self-determination through a series of economic crises so deep that her
most striking export became her own disillusioned population.
