This book offers a new interpretation of political reform in the settler colonies of Britain's empire in the early nineteenth century. It examines the influence of Scottish Presbyterian dissenting churches and their political values. It re-evaluates five notorious Scottish reformers and unpacks the Presbyterian foundation to their political ideas: Thomas Pringle (1789-1834), a poet in Cape Town, Thomas McCulloch (1776-1843), an educator in Pictou, John Dunmore Lang (1799-1878), a church minister in Sydney, William Lyon Mackenzie (1795-1861), a rebel in Toronto, and Samuel McDonald Martin (1805?-1848), a journalist in Auckland. The book weaves the five migrants' stories together for the first time and demonstrates how the campaigns they led came to be intertwined. The book will appeal to historians of Scotland, Britain, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, the British Empire and the Scottish diaspora.

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Saidullah (also known as "Mullah Mastun" lewanai faqir or lewanai in Pashto and by the British as "The Great Fakir" or "Mad Fakir", "Mad Fakir of Swat" or the "Mad Mullah",) was a Pashtun fakir and religious mendicant whose Pashto name translated to "God-intoxicated" as a reference to his religious convictions and his belief that he was capable of miraculous powers. In response to the British occupation of the North West Frontier Province of modern day Pakistan, and the division of Pashtun lands by the 1,519 mile long Durand Line, Saidullah declared a jihad against the occupying British Empire and led from 10,000 to 100,000 Pashtun tribesmen in an uprising which began with the siege of Malakand from July 26 to August 2, 1897 against British forces under Brigadier-General William Hope Meiklejohn, and Major-General Sir Bindon Blood.

'Be warned. This book has no literary merit whatsoever. It is a lurid piece of nonsense, convoluted, implausible, peopled by unconvincing characters, written in drearily pedestrian prose, frequently ridiculous and wilfully bizarre. Needless to say, I doubt you'll believe a word of it.'So starts the extraordinary tale of Edward Moon, detective, his silent sidekick the Somnambulist and a devilish plot to recreate the apocalyptic prophecies of William Blake and bring the British Empire crashing down.With a gallery of vividly grotesque characters, a richly evoked setting and a playful highly literate style this is an amazingly readable literary fantasy and a brilliant debut.
