Pictures of Carntyne farm show that Shettleston and Tollcross were once rural neighbourhoods, far from the city centre. In fact when Eastbank Academy was built in the early 1890s its proposer was ridiculed because the school was considered to be too big for a village. For the most part, however, Rhona Wilson's book shows these east end districts as bustling tenement suburbs, their streets crammed with pubs, shops and trams. Horse-drawn carts, steam trains, and a glimpse of the old Green's Cinema complete the picture

The history of Glasgow extends back into the mists of legend, even beyond the sixth century AD when the city's patron saint, St Mungo, entered its story. From a small monastic community on the banks of the Molendinar Burn, Glasgow became the possession of Bishops and Archbishops. With the arrival of the Industrial Revolution, it developed into a powerhouse of the British Empire, and was sometimes credited as the Empire's Second City. Its teeming population and developed industry brought about problems, particularly to the city's East End, where housing conditions and poor health became a major concern. Much of Glasgow s physical history was sacrificed in slum clearances for the benefit of its inhabitants. The east end has never seemed more alive during the twentieth Commonwealth Games, which the city hosted. It remains a friendly and vigorous place - and surprisingly verdant given its past!

Tracing Your Glasgow Ancestors is a volume in the series of city ancestral guides published by Pen & Sword for readers and researchers who want to find out about life in Glasgow in the past and to know where the key sources for its history can be found. In vivid detail it describes the rise of Glasgow through tobacco, shipping, manufacturing and trade from a minor cathedral town to the cosmopolitan center of the present day. Ian Maxwells book focuses on the lives of the local people both rich and poor and on their experience as Glasgow developed around them. It looks at their living conditions, at health and the ravages of disease, at the influence of religion and migration and education. It is the story of the Irish and Highland migrants, Quakers, Jews, Irish, Italians, and more recently people from the Caribbean, South-Asia and China who have made Glasgow their home. A wealth of information on the city and its people is available, and Glasgow Ancestors is an essential guide for anyone researching its history or the life of an individual ancestor. institutions, clubs, societies and schools.

Celtic Football Club’s story is laced with drama and excitement, featuring a host of colourful individuals and a social history matched by few, if any, football clubs. In Celtic: Pride and Passion, Lisbon Lion Jim Craig and Pat Woods, a historian of the club, take a fresh look at several lesser-known episodes in Celtic’s history, including: the fascinating link between Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show and a dramatic Ne’erday match at Celtic Park; the unforgettable night the ‘playboy of the Eastern world’ lit up Parkhead with a performance that helped to sow the seeds for a revolution at the club; the remarkable story of a trophy that was such a source of friction that the club kept it locked in a safe; and the pivotal year in which the rivalry between Celtic and Rangers took on a darker hue. They also recount the revealing story, told through the eyes of the European press, of how Celtic captivated a continent in the annus mirabilis of 1967. Celtic: Pride and Passion is a book that no discerning fan of Celtic Football Club will want to be without.

Thirty years after Glasgow turned towards regeneration, indicators of its built environment, its health, economic performance and its quality of life remain below UK averages. This interdisciplinary study examines the ongoing transformation of Glasgow as it has transitioned from a de-industrial to a post-industrial city during the 21st Century. Looking at diverse issues of urban policy, regeneration, and economic and social change, it considers the evolving lived experiences of Glaswegians. Contributors explore the necessary actions required to secure the gains of regeneration and create an economically competitive, socially just and sustainable city, establishing a theory that moves beyond post-industrialism that serves as a model for similar cities globally.
Covering every aspect of human life in Scotland, this list of ethnological papers makes a substantial contribution to ethnological scholarship, particularly in national identity. In addition to papers, aids to ethnological research are included and are classified as such under subject headings.

Newspaper journalism is a romantic profession. The men and women who wrote for newspapers in the twentieth century started work in a 'Hold the front page!' atmosphere: hot metal, clicking typewriters and inky fingers. In this fascinating collection, the latest in the Scottish Working People's History Trust series, Ian MacDougall has captured the memories of 22 veteran journalists from a wide range of newspapers all over Scotland, some local, some national. The earliest entrant started work in 1929, just before the Great Depression, the latest in the mid 1950s. Their accounts, like so much of oral history, describe a physical world we have almost lost sight of since the computer revolution. But it was a different social world too: it would be unusual for school leavers today to start work as 'copy-boys' running out for cigarettes or filling gluepots for their scary older colleagues. Journalists had to turn their hands to anything from flower shows to air raids, from Hess's landing near Eaglesham to royal visits; and women often had to fight their corner to get started as young reporters. As journalist Neal Ascherson says in his foreword, the book contains 'a swathe of Scottish social history': virtually all these journalists made their way from humble backgrounds, drawn by the desire for an exciting rather than a safe job - and above all one full of human interest.
