No Gods and Precious Few Heroes : Scotland Since 1914
This book tells the sombre tale of Scotland's industrial decline in the 20th century. He records the pressures and the events which have shaped Scotland's history since 1911, and gives insights into the resulting effect upon Scottish culture and society. Nationalism, external political interference (or lack of it), industrial and agricultural decline, and the two wars are discussed. This account should be of interest to general readers interested in Scotland's recent history, to school pupils and undergraduate students of history.
