Originally published in 1991 and focussing on the countryside, this
book examines patterns of settlement and agriculture in Scotland
and considers how these were increasingly altered during the 17th
and 18th Centuries by the first Improvers and then by the more
widespread impact of the Agricultural Revolution. It considers the
effect on the landscape of the changing role of the church, the
development of improved communications and the rise of new
industries. The book analyses in detail the ways in which the
landscape changed in Scotland's transition from a medieval,
impoverished country and an undeveloped economy to a modern society
and one of the most highly urbanised countries in Europe.
