This research study analyses four Scottish novels on the Highland Clearances from the point of view of trauma theory. The Clearances, carried out in the Scottish Highlands approx. 200 years ago, and the Clearances-related feelings of betrayal often resulted in a traumatisation of the victims. The study theoretically proves that within the novel texts, a trauma-processing capacity can be identified. Thus, this book will be of interest for readers with a research focus on literary and cultural studies (among others). In his analysis, Ebest also adopts approaches from Postcolonialism and Historiography. In addition, modes of thought stemming from the fields trauma/memory, nationalism and conflict research are employed. Ebest works as a university teacher in Hesse and Bavaria (Germany). Currently, he is doing research on the formation and integration of traumas, characteristics of internal colonies as well as cultural ways of constructing national identities.
