Dr Gaskell's pioneering study of social and economic change in a west Highland parish during the last century has come to be regarded as a classic of local history, a book which raises issues that are still of general and indeed of national importance. But Morvern Transformed is more than a study of history: it is (to quote Professor R. H. Campbell's new Introduction) 'a fascinating portrayal of a way of life which, only a century old, is already as different from the present as it was in its own day from the way of life another century before.'

MEDIA REVIEWS
Review of the hardback: 'A brilliant study of social and economic change in an Argyll parish during the nineteenth century.' Geographical Journal
Review of the hardback: 'A model of cool appraisal, in which sympathy does not become uncontrolled emotion ... well grounded in factual record, but transformed by imagination into absorbing narrative.' History
Review of the hardback: 'An island of sanity and common sense in a sea of emotion ...Dr Gaskell's book is no myopic parochial study. It raises social and economic issues of national importance. The book is a remarkable achievement.' Victorian Studies
Review of the hardback: 'The most accomplished social and economic history of this corner of the West Highlands ... It is the detail of Dr Gaskell's account that is so fascinating.' The Economist
