    Scottish Forestry: A Social History Of Scottish Forestry In The Twentieth Century
    Mairi Stewart - Paperback - John Donald
    The creation of large new tracts of forest, together with the development of a modern wood processing sector, was the single biggest transformation to occur in the Scottish countryside during the 20th century. While the environmental and landscape impacts of this change has been much commented upon, its impact on Scottish culture and society has attracted comparatively little attention. This book tells the fascinating story of the human side of forestry, drawing heavily on the thoughts, experiences and reflections of a wide range of individuals from all levels and all sectors of the industry as it has developed in Scotland over the last 100 years.

    Textual Deceptions: False Memoirs And Literary Hoaxes In The Contemporary Era
    Sue Vice - Hardback - Edinburgh University Press
    Sue Vice considers a wide range of 20th- and 21st-century literary deceptions. These include memoirs that were published as true accounts of such extreme experiences as surviving the Holocaust, life in a Los Angeles gang, and rehabilitation from drug addiction. Each of these memoirs turned out to be either wholly invented or substantially embellished. The book argues that literary deceptions and false memoirs have particular cultural value and significance.
