Congratulations to Dr Gordon Pentland of the University of Edinburgh for winning the prestigious Senior Hume Brown Prize in Scottish History for his marvellous book, Radicalism, Reform and National Identity in Scotland 1820 – 1833.

Dr Pentland’s groundbreaking work on Scottish Radicalism and Reform shows how the Societies’ martyrs were reinvented and commemorated by Radicals and Reformers as martyrs for political and religious liberties in the face of arbitrary and tyrannous power.

If you are going to read any scholarly book on Scottish and British history this year, then this is the one.
