New TopicFOR FREEDOM ALONE - THE DECLARATION OF ARBROATHPosted by -EDITOR-
26 Nov 2007 :  9:48:08 PM

Full Title: For Freedom Alone - The Declaration of Arbroath 1320.
Publisher: Tuckwell Press
Author: Edward J Cowan
Form: Paperback, 8.4" x 5.4", 162pp

ISBN-13: 978-1862321502
Availability: unknown
Comments: The Declaration of Arbroath, 6 April, 1320, is one of the most remarkable documents to have been produced anywhere in medieval Europe. Quoted by many, understood by few, its historical significance has now almost been overtaken by its mythic status. Since 1998, the US Senate has claimed that the American Declaration of Independence is modeled upon 'the inspirational document' of Arbroath, and 6 April is celebrated annually as a day of national significance to all Americans, especially those of Scottish descent. To date, such claims have not been the subject of scholarly investigation; this is the first book-length study to examine the origins of the Declaration and the ideas upon which it drew, while tracing the rise of its mystic status in Scotland and exploring its possible impact upon Revolutionary America.

New TopicMAKING THE VOTE COUNT: THE ARBROATH WOMENPosted by -EDITOR-
01 Aug 2008 :  12:39:33 PM

Full Title: Making the Vote Count: The Arbroath Women Citizen's Association 1931-1945.

Form: paperback, 88 pages
ISBN: 0 900019 45 X
Author: Sarah F Browne
Cover Price: £6.00

Availability: Available directly from publisher online (Abertay Historical Society)

Publishers information: Women Citizens’ Associations were formed in Scotland in the aftermath of the campaign for equal suffrage as leading campaigner Eleanor Rathbone realised that a national network of groups was needed to educate women on their new role in civil society. Using previously unexplored papers, Sarah Browne seeks to highlight this forgotten part of women’s history. In this publication it is shown that far from being merely committee women these groups constituted important political forums campaigning on a number of issues of local and national importance, such as for more policewomen.

New TopicTEXTILE INDUSTRY IN ARBROATHPosted by Sandstone

I came across this publication in the Friends of Dundee City Archives.
It makes an interesting read and the maps before and after the harbour expansion show the different courses of the Brothock burn.
