Tom Shields

Glasgow was once known as the Second City of the Empire whose industrial success, merchant city along with architectural and cultural magnificence hid a darker side of urban poverty and squalor.  Today the heavy industry is long gone, and 21st-century Glasgow is a vibrant, culturally diverse, and stylish centre for the arts and learning.  With a wealth of insider local knowledge and engaging anecdotes, Tom Shields explores surprising corners of this great city, how the people made Glasgow and how Glasgow made its people.
