Reviews

It makes for surprisingly satisfying, if sometimes shocking, reading - The ScotsmanDudgeon has hit on the winning formula of allowing the history of a place to reverberate through the voices of its citizenry - Jenni Frazer, The Jewish ChronicleThere is much of substance in Our Glasgow. It is written clearly and...it has strong individual voices...It is also brisk. This has its attractions as Dudgeon bounds through his topics with energy and...erudition...[T]he old Glasgow appeals, if not as a reality then as an idea drenched in warming nostalgia...One can look back in anger, astonishment or admiration. One can laugh at the troubles and be lifted by the strength of our ancestors - The Herald
