A People's History of Scotland looks beyond the kingsnbsp;and queens, the battles and bloody defeats of thenbsp;past. It captures the history that matters today,nbsp;stories of freedom fighters, suffragettes, the workersnbsp;of Red Clydeside, and the hardship and protest ofnbsp;the treacherous Thatcher era.

With riveting storytelling, Chris Bambery recountsnbsp;the struggles for nationhood. He charts the lives of Scotsnbsp;who changed the world, as well as those who fought for the cause of ordinarynbsp;people at home, from the poets Robbie Burns and Hugh MacDiarmid tonbsp;campaigners such as John Maclean and Helen Crawfurd.

This is a passionate cry for more than just independence but also for a nation
based on social justice.
