More About This Textbook

Overview

This oral history of Glasgow spans most of the last century—a time of economic downturn and eventual renewal, in which the many communities making up the city experienced upheavals that tore some apart and brought others closer together. It tells of the beating heart of no mean city in the words of the people who made it what it is. Piers Dudgeon has listened to dozens of people who remember the city as it was, and who have lived through its many changes. They talk of childhood and education, of work and entertainment, of family, community values, health, politics, religion, and music. Their stories will make you laugh and cry. It is people's own memories that make history real and this engrossing book captures them vividly.

    A walk down memory lane

    This book is great, to me, and I read it when I have time, dipping into it to read a little bit more. I love the way the topic and subject matter leads me down memory lane as most of the stuff is relevant to me and my life. I recognise a lot of what the author is talking about and in fact, have lived some of it, being a native Glaswegian myself.
