This book celebrates the emergence of the Scots and Scotland from centuries of poverty and backwardness as the nineteenth century saw Scottish locomotives and ships working on land and sea throughout the world, and Scottish technology leading the way. It analyses the ways in which Scots retained their strong sense of national identity despite considerable industrial and social upheaval and asks the question: who are the Scots?
