I will pay for the following article Why did the industrial structure that emerged in mid nineteenth-century Scotland endure for as long as it did. The work is to be 9 pages with three to five sources, with in-text citations and a reference page. The present status is that it has established its own parliament in Edinburgh to vote on wide-ranging political issues while remaining part of the United Kingdom. Most Scottish industry and commerce is concentrated in a few large cities on the waterways of the central lowlands. Edinburgh, on the Firth of Forth, is a cultural center, the administrative capital of Scotland, and a center of paper production and publishing. Glasgow, one of the largest cities in Great Britain, lies on the Clyde. It is Scotlands leading seaport and a center of shipbuilding and it supports numerous light industries. Although heavy industry has declined, the high-technology “Silicon Glen” corridor has developed between Glasgow and Edinburgh.
Several changes occurred in structure of industries with the passage of time (Campbell, 1985). The significance of coal, once Scotlands most important mineral resource, has declined. Oil, however, gained prominence in Scotlands economy during the 1970s, with the growth of North Sea oil extraction companies. Natural gas is also abundant in the North Sea fields. Other important industries are textile production (woolens, silks, and linens), distilling, and fishing. Textiles, beer, and whisky, which are among Scotlands chief exports, are produced in many towns. However one should remember that the industrial revolution that occurred in Scotland in 18th century laid foundation for the present prospect of industries (Lee, 1995). Moreover the industrial structure followed by Scotland in mid nineteenth century had several strong advantages which helped Scotland to achieve its present growth. Keeping these points in view, the present study has been conducted with the following objectives.
Literature relating to the industrial structure in Scotland in mid nineteenth century was reviewed systematically.
