This is an analysis of the 20th-century history of Scottish agriculture outside the Highlands. It examines in detail East Lothian and Dumfriesshire, and includes interviews. The book outlines the major developments in the market for regular farm labour in Lowland Scotland during the period. It takes up many of the issues discussed by recent rural social historians, and incorporates a number of economic and sociological theories into historical analysis. In addition to general interest in the history of farm labour and the development of farming in Lowland Scotland, this book should be useful to agricultural and labour historians, labour economists, rural sociologists and agricultural policy-makers.
