brown end-papers with map of Scotland (1785) & facing description; preface, contents & illustrations list to the front. This carefully documented study attempts to correct the popular historical fallacy that almost everything significant in Scottish history occurred before the end of 1746. The departure of Prince Charles Edward was followed in the Highlands by eighty turbulent years of social and economic change, years in which governments, landowners and political economists strove to bring about economic development among a people whom they regarded as barbarous and uncivilised. In this admirably dispassionate account, Professor Youngson relates the problems - of population, communications, agriculture, industry - along with their proposed solutions, to the wider discussion of economic policy in the works of Hume, Anderson and Adam Smith. This, then, is the story of the largely unsuccessful attempt to revitalize the highland economy, based on farming, fishing and small-scale industry, set in the context of a truly European debate on the roles of the public and private sectors in economic affairs; it has much relevance to the not dissimilar problems facing the Scottish Highlands today.
