Many of the issue's which affected Govan during this period are described, from social events and court appearances to politics and murders,. The author draws on many of his experiences including his fractured family upbringing and schooling. Strong themes are the demise of the Burgh in terms of employment with the loss of many shipyard jobs and the ermous spirit of togetherness by Govan people despite obvious religious, social and political differences.
