These outstanding people and epoch-making events are featured in Glasgow: Tales of the City.As a result of painstaking research, some startling new facts have emerged about the life and times of some of the citys most interesting characters.

The many individuals documented in this book include the worlds greatest pilot, whose many flying feats are still held in great awe today and unlikely ever to be repeated. He was hailed as a hero in America, they gave a him a ticker-tape reception in New York and Hollywood begged him to be a star.More recently, Glasgow was popularised by a TV programme about the citys tough police officer Taggart. The role of the Glasgow detective made Mark McManus one of Scotlands first international TV stars, and Marks own life story makes equally compelling reading.Before Billy Connolly, Glasgows greatest-ever comedian was Lex McLean.

He smashed all the box-office records in a Glasgow theatre and became a legend in his own lifetime. His story has never before been told in such detail.This is undoubtedly one of the most fascinating studies of Scotlands largest city ever published.
