   schema:reviewBody ""In the eighteenth century the old peasant society of lowland Scotland disappeared to be replaced by a new order of capitalist farmers and landless labourers. It was one of the most fundamental changes in modern Scottish history, but has never before been studied in detail."--BOOK JACKET. "In this groundbreaking book, T. M. Devine uses original and extensive archive material from four representative counties to explore this social revolution - a revolution unparalleled in Western Europe for its speed and scale. He compares developments in the Highlands of Scotland and in agrarian England, and covers a wide range of issues, including: the seventeenth-century rural social structure; the eighteenth-century agrarian economy; landlordism and improvement; the evolution of the tenant farming class; and the dispossession of the cottar class. It is an important and controversial book on a subject which has received inadequate study in the past."--BOOK JACKET." ;
