Back cover text:

Scotland No More? taps into the need we all share - to know who we are and where we come from. Scots have always been on the move, and from all quarters we are bombarded with evidence of interest in their historical comings and goings. Earlier eras have been well covered, but until now the story of Scotland’s twentieth-century diaspora has remained largely untold. Scotland No More? considers the causes and consequences of the phenomenon, scrutinising the exodus and giving free rein to the voices of those at the heart of the story: the emigrants themselves.


Effective studies of the Scottish diaspora are still few and far between. So I welcome Marjory Harper's important and stimulating overview.   Best-selling author Tim Devine on Adventurers and Exiles: The Great Scottish Exodus
