Reviews

  • Scotland's Empire is a fascinating work, replete with telling detail and continually throwing out observations which invite further speculation

    Literary Review
  • A book that will be enjoyed by anyone interested in history, or who simply enjoys a good story, well told

  • The history of the British empire will never look the same after this book

    Professor Christopher Bayly
  • Tom Devine, Scotland's foremost historian, follows up his majestic The Scottish Nation with a forensic analysis of Scotland's central role in the British Empire ... Devine creates a book that suits post-devolution Scotland - we only have ourselves to understand

    Frank McAvetty, MSP, Sunday Herald (Books of the Year 2003)
  • As a sophisticated and clearly argued statement of Scots and Empire this book could hardly be bettered
