Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Well written, easy to read. More objective than some books I have read on this unhappy subject. Worth reading, you don't need to have a "heavy" background in Scotch history to understand the book. If you are interested in the Clearances for whatever reason, you will find this book useful.
