    Did the Scots really cower in the shadow of their powerful, aggressive English neighbour? This book reveals a very different picture.

  • In The Wake of the Vital Sparkby Stuart Donald

    Neil Wilson Publishing 2013; US$ 14.57

    For generations, Neil Munro's comic creation - the motley crew of the Vital Spark under the command of Para Handy - has enthralled readers as they sailed through the coastal and island waters of the West Coast of Scotland. This book is a nostalgic trip down those same waters at the turn of the century. The ships, the people and the places they frequented... more...

    Neil Wilson Publishing 2013; US$ 14.57

    ?SINCE THE WAR SCOTLAND HAS been profoundly altered. Its native tradition of entrepreneurial capitalism has disappeared. Its heavy industries have rapidly declined.

  • A New Race of Menby Michael Fry

    Birlinn 2013; US$ 15.99

    War opened and closed Scotland's greatest century: a pitiless part in the defeat of Naploeon in 1815, a huge blood-sacrifice for the sake of victory from 1914. In between came the greatest contributions to the progress and happiness of the rest of mankind that the Scots have ever made - in everything from the combine harvester to the mackintosh to... more...

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 48.95

    This title, first published in 1989, was one of the first to directly address the legal dimension of bastard feudalism.

What emerges is a focus on the... more...

  • Modernity Britainby David Kynaston

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2013; US$ 23.99

    The late 1950s was an action-packed, often dramatic time in which the contours of modern Britain began to take shape.
