Item description for Being Scottish by Tom M. Devine & Paddy Logue...
The question "who are we?'"continues to perplex many Scots today. The one hundred short essays in this book help to expand the debate and provide some of the answers. The collection includes the views of people at the center of things as well as those at the margins of society, the famous as well as the not so well known, the authoritative and mainstream as well as the idiosyncratic. It also contains a few views "from the outside," from North America, Europe and elsewhere. Some contributors delve into their personal histories. Others deal in political and cultural realities, and many rely on storytelling, humor and lyricism to approach a tentative sense of identity.
