Debating the Highland clearances by Eric Richards( file )
2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 991 libraries worldwide
Storm clouds always gather over the story of the Highland Clearances. The eviction of the Highlanders from the glens and straths of the Highlands and Islands of the north of Scotland still causes great historical dispute more than a century after the events. The Highland Clearances also generated a great deal of contemporary controversy and documentation. The record comes in diverse forms and with radically different provenances, offering excellent material for exercises in historical analysis and selection. Debating the Highland Clearances introduces the Highland Clearances as a classic histo
Britannia's children : emigration from England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland since 1600 by Eric Richards( Book )
5 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 455 libraries worldwide
"Britannia's Children is the first account of emigration from the British Isles as a whole, including England, Scotland and Ireland (Ireland being part of the Britain during the Great Famine and its classic age of emigration). Eric Richards traces the stages of this extraordinary movement from the days of Raleigh and the Mayflower to modern times, and shows the variety of motives that drove men and women to make the most momentous decisions of their lives. He also draws on a mass of examples of individual cases, voyages, destinations and fates."--Jacket
Destination Australia : migration to Australia since 1901 by Eric Richards( Book )
5 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 431 libraries worldwide
"This book charts the history of migration to Australia from the twentieth century to the present. Written by one of Australia's leading historians of immigration, the book explores three main themes: the maintenance of British White Australia through to 1947; the Europeanisation of immigration through to the 1970s; and, the dismantling of White Australia and the radical diversification of immigration that has continued to the present day. More than just a linear history, Richards uses the drama of real stories and experiences to illustrate broader arguments and places Australia's experience in the context of international migration patterns."--Provided by publisher
A history of the Highland clearances : Agrarian transformation and the evictions 1746-1886 by Eric Richards( Book )
2 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 283 libraries worldwide
The Highland Clearances : people, landlords and rural turmoil by Eric Richards( Book )
12 editions published between 2000 and 2013 in English and held by 239 libraries worldwide
"This is the first fully-documented study of one of Scotland's most emotive subjects for many years. It traces the origins of the Clearances from the eighteenth century to their culmination in the crofting legislation of the 1880s, showing how the process of clearance was part of a wider European movement of rural depopulation. Eric Richards describes the appalling conditions and treatment suffered by the Highland population, yet at the same time illustrates how difficult the choices were that faced even the most benevolent of landlords in the face of rapid economic change." "The Clearances were the most rugged and painful of many attempted 'solutions' to the problem of how to maintain a population on marginal and infertile land. In drawing attention away from the mythology to the hard fact of what really happened, The Highland Clearances offers a balanced analysis of events which created a terrible scar in the Highland and Gaelic imagination, the historical legacy of which still lies unresolved as we enter the twenty-first century."--BOOK JACKET
Patrick Sellar and the Highland Clearances : homicide, eviction, and the price of progress by Eric Richards( Book )
2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 144 libraries worldwide
"Patrick Sellar, fiercest advocate and enforcer of the Highland Clearances, is possibly the most hated man in Scottish history. It is said even now that the grass will not grow on his grave. In the first biography of Sellar ever published Eric Richards uses contemporary sources to reconstruct his life and times, telling a dramatic story that will allow the reader to rejudge the man - for better or for worse."--BOOK JACKET
