The book looks at meal mobs, riots against the Highland Clearances, the widespread anti-Militia disturbances of 1797, and also riots about church patronage, politics and industrial action. The concluding chapter draws various themes together and examines the composition of crowds in the period, the role of women in disturbances, the use of handbills before and during riots and the leadership, organisation and forms of action of the crowd. The author makes full use of a range of source material: the records associated with the administration of Scottish criminal justice, Home Office documents, and numerous newspapers and periodicals. There are maps, diagrams and contemporary illustrations throughout and an extensive bibliography.
