The Clergy and the Clearances

The Clergy and the Clearances: The Church and the Highland Crisis 1790-1850 is an excellent book on the subject of the Clearances by David Paton.

David is actually a cousin of mine, and I received a copy in the post this morning from his uncle, a former archdeacon of Canterbury Cathedral, who enthused about it no end on the phone the other day! The book was published in 2005 by John Donald (an imprint of Birlinn) and I've been absorbed by it all afternoon.


Yup, I am completely biased, but it is a great read!
