Scottish Forestry: A Social History Of Scottish Forestry In The Twentieth Century
- 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.

How To Be Both
- Hardback - Hamish Hamilton
This is a novel all about art's versatility. Borrowing from painting's fresco technique to make an original literary double-take, it's a fast-moving genre-bending conversation between forms, times, truths, and fictions. There's a renaissance artist of the 1460s. There's the child of a child of the 1960s. Two tales of love and injustice twist into a singular yarn where time gets timeless, structural gets playful, knowing gets mysterious, fictional gets real - and all life's givens get given a second chance.

Growling In The Kennel Of Justice: Lawyers' Reflections On The Legacy Of Robert Burns
- Hardback - Matador
In unfolding the backstory of the Bard's life and working through the voices of 22 lawyers from Burns's era, Allan Nicolson subtly unravels a tale at once familiar and new - even startling at times. Blending Burns's verse, correspondence and law reports of the time, Nicolson has been able to build up a novel analysis of the legacy of the Scottish poet. Steeped in the atmosphere of that era, the narratives are peppered with details of bank failures, land disputes, bankruptcies, threats of dismissal, court actions for breach of copyright, and support claims for Burns's many illegitimate children, which, alongside the poet's verse and correspondence, reveal hitherto unexplored areas of life in late 18th century Scotland.
