Mona McLeod
"Agents of Change: The Scots in Poland, 1800-1918"

The history of the thousands of Scots who emigrated to Poland between the 15th and 17th centuries has been well documented; but little is known of those who followed them in the early 19th-century. Amongst them were many of Mona's ancestors.

The author's book investigates those later immigrants, set in the wider context of Poland under Russian rule. These Scots made a major contribution to the development of the Polish economy but wars and revolutions destroyed many of their achievements
