Scottish History Books

In this part of the site you'll find a selection of history books written by Scottish historian Graeme Morton, Scottish Studies Foundation Chair at the University of Guelph, Ontario (and other family members):

Ourselves and Others (Scotland 1832 - 1914) Ourselves and Others (Scotland 1832 - 1914)
A history of the Scottish people at home and abroad during the industrial period of 1832 to 1914.
William Wallace William Wallace (Man and Myth)
William Wallace (c. 1270-1305) is truly primal myth material. The champion of Scottish independence, defeated by Edward I and eventually hanged, drawn and quartered in London, he is revered to this day as Scotland's foremost patriot.
Unionist Nationalism Unionist Nationalism
Mid-19th century Scottish nationalism has been perceived as weak, failing to produce a parliamentary challenge. The European revolutions were set alight in 1848 yet missed Great Britain; for Scotland a British/Imperial agenda was said to dominate.

This "failure" of Scottish nationalism is an orthodoxy long overdue for challenge.

Locality, Community and Nation Locality, Community and Nation
A sociological survey of locality, one of the key topic choices for papers 2, 3, 5 and 6 of the AEB A Level Sociology syllabus.
