The Highlander as Military Laborer
This chapter examines the Highland soldiers' experiences as a military laborer within the empire. Subjected to unfamiliar levels of discipline and punishment, the recruited Highlanders had been acculturated to the brutal world of soldiering in the army of King George. They also underwent corporate professionalization, making them think in new ways about their priorities and imperatives. This training included not only developing skills and social habits as soldiers, but it also made these soldiers cognizant of their rights as military laborers. Thus, living in such an imperial world exposed even the poorest Highlanders to market-orientated structures to a greater degree than they had previously experienced in the changing Highlands.
