Our Glasgow Summary

Our Glasgow: Memories of Life in Disappearing Britain by Piers Dudgeon

This oral history of Glasgow spans most of the last century - a time of economic downturn and eventual renewal, in which the many communities making up the city experienced upheavals that tore some apart and brought others closer together. It tells of the beating heart of no mean city in the words of the people who made it what it is. Piers Dudgeon has listened to dozens of people who remember the city as it was, and who have lived through its many changes. They talk of childhood and education, of work and entertainment, of family, community values, health, politics, religion and music. Their stories will make you laugh and cry. It is people's own memories that make history real and this engrossing book captures them vividly.

Our Glasgow Reviews

'Dudgeon 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 Chronicle '[Our Glasgow] has strong individual voices [and] Dudgeon bounds through his topics with energy and...erudition' -- The Herald '[I]t makes for surprisingly satisfying, if sometimes shocking, reading' -- The Scotsman
