‘… in integrating and drawing upon work within both anthropology and geography, he takes important steps forward in the progress of both subject areas in their attempts to come to terms with this most important, and yet little understood, phenomenon…Highland Homecomings is a well written account, and it is to the author’s great credit that the book is, at the same time, highly entertaining, intellectually stimulating and never patronising about its subjects… This is a very valuable addition to work on Scotland, (Celtic) identity, and diaspora as a whole.’ – Journal of Historical Geography
‘…an intriguing study of a long-neglected aspect of diaspora, namely that of homing-desire and homecoming-practice in all their psychological, performative, and political facets.’ – Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute
