Maps can tell much about a place that traditional histories fail to communicate. John Moore gives fascinating insights into topics such as: the development of the Clyde and its shipbuilding industry, the villages which were gradually subsumed into the city, what lies underneath the city streets, the growth of Glasgow during the Industrial Revolution, the development of transport, the city’s green spaces, the health of Glasgow, the city as a wartime target, and its regeneration in the 1980s as the host city of one of the UK’s five National Garden Festivals.

Erwin James spent his teenage years drifting, his petty crime culminating in the terrible events for which he was jailed for life in 1984. James struggled to come to terms with the enormity of his crimes. Then he met Joan, a prison psychologist, who helped him to confront the painful truth of his past. Her sessions transformed his life. Encouraged to read and to educate himself, over the next twenty years Erwin James would go on to receive a BA in History, and become a regular columnist for the Guardian. In Redeemable he tells his remarkable story.
