The life stories of more than 1,000 women who shaped Scotland's history

The New Biographical Dictionary of Scottish Women is a fully revised and extended edition of a highly regarded reference work that illuminates the lives of Scottish women in history. It includes more than 180 additional entries on women who died before 2018, forty new photographs, and an extended thematic index. With fascinating lives on every page, the concise entries illustrate the lives of Scottish women from the distant past to our own times, as well as the worldwide Scottish diaspora. Written by experts, the book provides a striking narrative of how women's actions and influence have always helped to shape Scotland's identity.

This dictionary is dedicated to the memory of co-editor Sue Innes (1948-2005), who gave to it all the enthusiasm, dedication and flair she brought to everything in her life, and who was still working on it, and inspiring others, to the very end.
