(p.189) Chapter Nine Conclusion
Ireland, Radicalism, and the Scottish Highlands, c.1870-1912

Andrew G. Newby

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter presents some concluding thoughts. For Glasgow radicals, the ‘Crofters' War’ presented an opportunity to promote the type of thoroughgoing land reform apparently rejected by the Irish. Stripped of any Irish nationalist connotations, much of the rhetoric was appropriated by radical Liberalism in the first decade of the twentieth century. Outrage on the part of the landed classes remained, but without the interrelated issues of Irish land and nationalism as distractions, a deeper debate into the nature of the use of land was possible, and it is in this context that ‘Irish’ intervention in the ‘Crofters' War’ should be seen.

Keywords:   Crofters' War, radicals, land reform, Irish land, liberalism
