Edinburgh International Book Festival: Tom Devine

Synopsis

THE ENGLISH IN MODERN SCOTLAND

Scotland's leading historian examines the nation's main migrant group who have outnumbered all other immigrants combined over the last fifty years — the English — and comes to some intriguing conclusions.

Sir Tom Devine concentrates on the response of the Scots to their new next door neighbours in a lecture based on his co-edited book New Scots: Scotland's Immigrant Communities Since 1945.

Tickets go on sale at 8:30am on Tuesday 26 June.
