Scotland's Homes Fit for Heroes is a major contribution to the historical literature on early 20th century housing reform and town planning in Scotland. Against the background of an indigenous tenement tradition, and the early development of the mainstream garden city movement, the book provides a broad overview of the key influences of garden city principles in Scotland, highlighting their impact on the built form of working class housing and the general pattern of urban expansion. The work is based on a wide-ranging review of official documents and contemporary reports, along with insights gained from site visits to various locations across Scotland.
