Review Text

  • By Colin MCLEAN on 14 August 2006

    First, this book has been long needed; there are a few locally based guides to the Scottish coal industry, but many of these are little more than picture books. This new publication is in a quite different league. It is both comprehensive and authoritative, using some of the best sources and resources currently available. Better than anything else I have seen, this brings home the enormous scale of an industry that was once - just before WW1 - the largest industry in Scotland, providing the livelihood for thousands of Scots, their families and their communities, and whose workers were until relatively recently a considerable political force in Scotland (and in the UK). The industry has now virtually disappeared and this publication is now the standard guide to its scale, using well-researched statistics and a wonderful photographic archive. Anyone with even a passing interest in the Scottish coal industry cannot fail to be intrigued and impressed by its content and scope.
