Islay Book Festival 2019: The Scottish Clearances

Cyber Bistro, Isle of Islay, PA42 7BJ
Sun 1st September 2019
Leading Scottish historian Sir Tom Devine talks to Professor Steve Mithen of Islay Heritage about his recent book on the Scottish Clearances. It is the first ever attempt to examine the enormous dispossession of traditional peasant communities in the 18th and 19th centuries, not only in the Highlands but throughout ‎Scotland. Andrew Marr called the book 'superb' and Neal Ascherson commended it as 'perhaps the most important work of history Devine has ever written’.
