From the Ice Age to the recent Scottish Referendum, historian and author Alistair Moffat explores the history of the Scottish nation. As well as focusing on key moments in the nation's history such as the Battle of Bannockburn and the Jacobite Risings, Moffat also features other episodes in history that are perhaps less well documented. From prehistoric timber halls to inventions and literature, Moffat's tale explores the drama of battle, change, loss and invention interspersed with the lives of ordinary Scottish folk, the men and women who defined a nation.

Containing entries on 830 women, The Biographical Dictionary of Scottish Women will be a revelation to all with an interest in Scottish life from earliest times to the near present. Written by a team of 280 scholars, the entries tell the stories of women famous and infamous, well-known and not-so-well-known, extraordinary and ordinary. Re-peopling the landscape in this way enables a new perspective on Scottish life and demands a rethinking of what is meant by Scottish national identity. The scope and approach of the Dictionary make it an essential work of reference and a starting point for future research, as well as an enthralling read. Every entry contains biographical information, an account of the woman's life, and sources and further reading: it also tells a story. Many of the stories are linked, building up a vivid picture of Scottish life in different times and places. For readers interested in particular occupations or ways of life, there is a thematic index with more than sixty category headings. The Biographical Dictionary of Scottish Women will disprove once and for all the contention that there is not enough information available to accord women their proper place in the story of Scotland's past.
