This definitive reference book is the result of three decades of research and embraces a huge variety of sources. It is a monumental achievement, telling the story of Scotland in a way that harks back to the great 19th-century gazetteers produced by the likes of Chambers and A & C Black. Organized alphabetically, The Making of Scotland contains a concise and authoritative history of the development of every city, town and village in Scotland. Within each individual history, the growth of the community is traced from the earliest of times right up to the present day. By focusing on the key industrial, architectural and cultural developments and the people who made them happen, The Making of Scotland traces the story of each place in a compelling and fascinating way. It is also generously illustrated with over 300 color and duotone photographs, and features copious detailed maps, an extensive bibliography and an index of over 5000 place names. Packed throughout with surprises for the general reader, The Making of Scotland is sure to become one of the indispensable reference books for anyone with an interest in the geography and rich history of this remarkable country.
