Modern Dundee:
Life in the City Since World War Two

Andrew Murray Scott

Updated Second Edition

Dundee has transformed itself since 1945. The city’s economy has diversified after its long dependence on the jute industry, and cultural and social life have developed in directions that would have been hard to predict two generations ago. Andrew Murray Scott’s vivid, informative and finely illustrated account concentrates on these critical years in Dundee’s history. Before World War Two the city was in decline and only in the 1970s, with the advent of new technologies, did Dundee’s regeneration begin. Against this background of profound change, the author gives a remarkable account of the rich daily life of Dundee. He recalls important events and individuals, offers keen insights into the processes of development and recovery, and paints a graphic portrait of the modern city and its people.
