New Book: Eighteenth-Century Scotland

Roger Emerson, who, in 2013, won the Saltire Society prize for best biography with his work on that great Scotsman, Archibald, 3rd Duke of Argyll, is shortly to publish another work under the same imprint, humming earth. It is entitled: Neglected Scots: Eighteenth-Century Glaswegians and Women. This is a topic that plays to Emerson’s many strengths as a scholar, notably his focus on networks and intellectual and political history.
