Scotland's Empire: The Origins Of The Global Diaspora

Author(s): T M Divine


From T. M. Devine, acclaimed author of "The Scottish Nation" and "To the Ends of the Earth", "Scotland's Empire" tells the compelling story of Scotland's role in forging and expanding the British Empire, from the Americas to Australia, India to the Caribbean. By 1820 Britain controlled a fifth of the world's population, and no people had made a more essential contribution than the Scots - working across the globe as soldiers and merchants, administrators and clerics, doctors and teachers. In this highly acclaimed book, T. M. Devine traces the vital part Scotland played in creating an empire - and the fundamental effect this had in moulding the modern Scottish nation.
