On the Crofter's Trail

On The Crofter's Trail [Pdf/ePub] eBook

On the Crofter's Trail by David Craig Book Summary:

In the Clearances of the 19th century, crofts--once the mainstay of Highland life in Scotland--were swept away as the land was put over to sheep grazing. Many of the people of the Highlands and islands of Scotland were forced from their homes by landowners in the Clearances. Some fled to Nova Scotia and beyond. David Craig sets out to discover how many of their stories survive in the memories of their descendants. He travels through 21 islands in Scotland and Canada, many thousands of miles of moor and glen, and presents the words of men and women of both countries as they recount the suffering of their forbears.

Decolonizing Nature

On The Crofter's Trail [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Decolonizing Nature by William (Bill) Adams,Martin Mulligan Book Summary:

British imperialism was almost unparalleled in its historical and geographical reach, leaving a legacy of entrenched social transformation in nations and cultures in every part of the globe. Colonial annexation and government were based on an all-encompassing system that integrated and controlled political, economic, social and ethnic relations, and required a similar annexation and control of natural resources and nature itself. Colonial ideologies were expressed not only in the progressive exploitation of nature but also in the emerging discourses of conservation. At the start of the 21st century, the conservation of nature is of undiminished importance in post-colonial societies, yet the legacy of colonial thinking endures. What should conservation look like today, and what (indeed, whose) ideas should it be based upon? Decolonizing Nature explores the influence of the colonial legacy on contemporary conservation and on ideas about the relationships between people, polities and nature in countries and cultures that were once part of the British Empire. It locates the historical development of the theory and practice of conservation - at both the periphery and the centre - firmly within the context of this legacy, and considers its significance today. It highlights the present and future challenges to conservationists of contemporary global neo-colonialism The contributors to this volume include both academics and conservation practitioners. They provide wide-ranging and insightful perspectives on the need for, and practical ways to achieve new forms of informed ethical engagement between people and nature.

Highland Homecomings

On The Crofter's Trail [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Highland Homecomings by Paul Basu Book Summary:

The first full-length ethnographic study of its kind, Highland Homecomings examines the role of place, ancestry and territorial attachment in the context of a modern age characterized by mobility and rootlessness. With an interdisciplinary approach, speaking to current themes in anthropology, archaeology, history, historical geography, cultural studies, migration studies, tourism studies, Scottish studies, Paul Basu explores the journeys made to the Scottish Highlands and Islands to undertake genealogical research and seek out ancestral sites. Using an innovative methodological approach, Basu tracks journeys between imagined homelands and physical landscapes and argues that through these genealogical journeys, individuals are able to construct meaningful self-narratives from the ambiguities of their diasporic migrant histories, and recover their sense of home and self-identity. This is a significant contribution to popular and academic Scottish studies literature, particularly appealing to popular and academic audiences in USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Scotland

Discovering The Scottish Revolution 1692-1746

On The Crofter's Trail [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Discovering The Scottish Revolution 1692-1746 by Neil Davidson Book Summary:

This major new work of historical scholarship offers a groundbreaking reassessment of Scottish politics and society in the late seventeenth and early eighteenth century that is set to become a standard work on the subject. Neil Davidson argues that Scotland experienced a revolution during this period that has rarely been recognised in the existing historiography. Davidson explores the political and economic changes of these years, revealing how social and economic power was transferred from one class to another. He describes how Scotland was transformed from a backward and feudal economy to a new centre of emergent capitalism. He traces the economic and social crisis that led to Scotland's incorporation into the Union in 1707, but argues that the Union did not lead to the transformation of Scottish society. The decisive period was instead the aftermath of the last Jacobite revolt in 1746, whose failure was integral to the survival and consolidation of British, and ultimately global capitalism. 'His opinions are bound to cause controversy and discussion ... a good thing as Scottish history desperately needs the airing and voicing of new approaches.' John R Young, Albion. ‘What is so good about Neil Davidson’s brave study is that he brings a Marxist perspective to bear on Scottish history in very clear and readable prose. Quotations and statistics drawn from uncannily wide reading will make this book of great value even to those who disagree with it.’ Angus Calder, author of Revolutionary Empire and Revolving Culture: Notes from the Scottish Republic

Sacred Space

On The Crofter's Trail [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Sacred Space by Marsha Rowe Book Summary:

Where in this world can we go to feel safe? This anthology is built around the concept of Sacred Space, a place -- either of the world or of the imagination -- where we can follow our own drift, find a place in which we can be more ourselves. It can be as mundane as a bath, or as disparately exotic as Romania, the Florida swamp of the Everglades, or hitting the road to the Australian outback with an emu and a kangaroo in tow. Even the ancient balm of the sun or of the colour blue can be a place of refuge and introspection. The pieces in this thought-provoking collection remind us that the search for the sacred remains powerful in a materialistic world.

Scotland

On The Crofter's Trail [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Scotland by Grant, Eric G,Dennis Smith,Paul Barnaby,Ulrike Morét Book Summary:

Scotland is probably the only sovereign nation to have chosen, in a more or less free vote, to surrender its independence in order to merge with a larger, more powerful, neighbour. For most of the period since the Union of 1707 the Scots were enthusiastic partners with England in creating and administering the British Empire. Inevitably, therefore, the end of empire caused an identity crisis in Scotland. For more than a Century pressure for political home rule produced no tangible result; however, the decisive vote in favour of devolution in the referendum of September 1997 means that a restored Scottish Parliament is now likely to be in place by the millennium. Irrespective of political developments, the last two decades have seen a renaissance in Scottish culture and historiography. This bibliography fully reflects the wealth of new developments in Scottish life and culture over the past twenty years and the new vibrancy of Scottish publishing.
