Description
If you go to the Scottish Highlands now, you will find many valleys almost without people. Yet we know from history and archaeology that the Highlands were inhabited for thousands of years. What happened? Between about 1740 and 1900, the Highland landlords decided to expel the people and establish great sheep farms instead. Five volumes will tell the story, starting with volume one -- Clans and Clearance -- which examines a number of orthodox beliefs which have been trustingly copied from textbooks down the years. It overturns a number of these cherished theories.  

It will supersede everything written on the Clearances at all times and places. SORLEY MACLEAN
