Contempt, Sympathy, and Romance: Lowland Perceptions of the Highlands and the Clearances During the Famine Years, 1845-1855
Tuckwell Press, 2000 - 195 pagina's
"Through examination of various attitudes in the press, the author also presents the major issues debated in the newspapers relating to the Highlands, with some fascinating results: for example, land had already become a bone of contention, thirty years before the 1880s land reform movement." "Working within the previously unexplored field of newspaper materials in the mid-nineteenth century, Krisztina Fenyo shows the uniqueness, power and richness of these sources for the evaluation of the range of Scottish public opinion."--BOOK JACKET.
