A superb book ... Anybody interested in Scottish history needs to read it

-- Andrew Marr * Sunday Times *
The definitive word for an academic generation at least on this most controversial of topics in Scottish history ... Dramatic * Herald Scotland *
Persuasive... A necessary book * Scotsman *
Powerful ... admirable lucidity ... important. -- Ewen A Cameron * Irish Times *
If Sir Tom Devine hadn't chosen to be a historian, he'd have made a great historical novelist. That choice may have been a loss to literature, but The Scottish Clearances: A History of the Dispossessed, is worth it. The scope of this book - the Lowlands, the Highlands and the diaspora from the 17th century to the 20th - is impressive, and the detail and depth of knowledge displayed are remarkable - but what's truly amazing about it is how damn readable it is. -- Diana Gabaldon * Telegraph *
At the end of this superb book, a much more nuanced picture emerges of what might be called the great demographic revolution of Scotland. -- David Aaronovitch * The Times *
Scotland's foremost historian ... a major publication. -- Kathleen Jamie * New Statesman *
