Land for the People? covers a previously neglected period which saw the formative legislation and policies which continue to shape Highland life. Drawing on a wider range of sources, both public and private, than hitherto, Ewen Cameron delivers an impartial corrective to so many previous emotional studies.

Both crofters and landlords emerge from scrutiny with more ambiguous reputations than previous hagiographies and demonologies have been prepared to allow.

Ewen A. Cameron is Reader in the School of History, Classics and Archaeology, University of Edinburgh, and joint editor of the Scottish Historical Review. Land for the People? was joint winner of the Hume Brown Senior Prize in Scottish History in 1995.
