The Scottish miners experienced enormous changes during these sixty-five years. Enjoying a high degree of autonomy underground throughout the nineteenth century, their work situation was transformed in the twentieth as Scotland became the most intensively mechanised of the British coalfields. Grievances generated by this change led to strike rates in Scotland being up to ten and fifteen times higher than in the major English coalfields. Such militancy displayed considerable geographical variation however, and the translation of grievances into industrial conflict was mediated by variables rooted in the community as well as the pit. A central theme of this volume is to explore the differences between the four principal mining regions in Scotland through the detailed study of ten localities within them. This innovative, two-tiered comparison is used to analyse the competing loyalties of class, gender and ethnicity, to map the uneven terrain of popular protest and social disorder, and to challenge traditional stereotypes of 'a peaceable kingdom'. This historical sociology of the Scottish coalfields frames the analysis of trade unionism and politics which is developed in the companion volume to this book.

As the popularity of Association Football spread from the west of Scotland through to the east of the country during the 1870's, several clubs were founded in Fife, initially in the west and central coal-mining communities, before spreading to the far-eastern parts of the County during the 1880's. This book details the histories of several of these clubs, and also how the introduction of competitive sport fuelled the rivalries that had been slowly building between neighbouring towns and villages at this time.These rivalries sometimes boiled over, however, resulting in fierce battles, not always confined to the field of play. Read about how, in one such incident, the housewives of the west Fife mining village of Lassodie chased rival supporters from their streets armed with broomsticks!Read also how the Cellardyke Bluejackets football club, who hailed from a small fishing community in the far east of Fife, could not compete in regular competition as the unpredictable occupation of their players meant that they could not guarantee to be home from the sea on Saturday afternoons! The histories and tales contained within the chapters of this book will make compelling reading; not only for those with a passion for football history, but for anyone interested in the social history of nineteenth century Fife!

This is the first substantial history of mineworkers in Scotland that covers the entire span of commercial mining from its origins in the Middle Ages to the extinction of deep coal mining in 2002. By focusing on the lives of coal miners themselves, their work and working conditions, Rob Duncan tells a very human story that brings into vivid relief the struggles of generations of men, women and children who have labored underground and at the pit-head, as well as those who spent their working lives in other significant sectors of mining—lead and shale. Based on a wide range of published work and primary sources, including the voices of mineworkers, official reports, and oral and written collections, The Mineworkers is a valuable and informative study of one of Scotland's most important industries.

Fife has always been one of Scotland's most distinctive counties. Though never a kingdom in its own right, its geographical position as a peninsular county between the firths of Tay and Forth has helped maintain its self-contained identity through the ages. Not surprising for a county of such historical resonance, Fife contains a huge number of houses, churches and castles that witnessed events that quite literally shaped the nation. This work introduces the reader to these places and those associated with them - from the great abbeys of Lindores and Balmerino and the major towns of St Andrews, Dunfermline and Kirkcaldy to the beautiful villages of the East Neuk and the islands of the Firth of Forth. It also introduces some of the less familiar details from Fife's to produce a complete introduction to this county.

This issue of the Digest of United Kingdom Energy Statistics (DUKES) is part of a series and updates the figures given in the DUKES 2011. The publication consists of seven chapters; the first chapter deals with overall energy, with the other chapters covering specific fuels, combined heat and power and renewable sources of energy. The statistics presented in this digest will generate widespread interest from anyone working within or with an interest in energy sources, consumption and climate change. Chapters covering specific fuels and renewable sources of energy contain details on the production and consumption of individual fuels, presented using commodity balances. A commodity balance illustrates the flow of a fuel through from production to final consumption. These individual commodity balances are also combined in an energy balance, showing the interaction between different fuels. General energy statistics are presented in a table, revealing energy consumption by final users and an analysis of energy consumption by main industrial groups. Surveys conducted by AEA Energy & Environment on behalf of DECC estimate the contribution made by combined heat and power and renewable energy to energy production and consumption in the UK.
