From the Back Cover:

Turning a spotlight on the Victorian love affair with Scotland, The Mighty Scot examines influential representations of Scottishness in literature, art, and hunting memoirs, and explores how Scotland came to be seen as a wellspring of fierce primal masculinity. Maureen M. Martin analyzes portrayals of Scottish masculinity over the course of the nineteenth century and looks at how the mystique of Scottish masculinity arose, the role it played in conceptions of English national identity, and its impact on Scots' attempts to construct a national identity of their own. This engaging book argues that the intricately woven concerns of nationality and masculinity are at the heart of the problematic meanings of Scotland, England, and manliness in nineteenth-century Britain.

"The Mighty Scot is a fascinating study of the nineteenth-century gendering of Scotland and the Scots. Exploring a broad range of representations, Maureen M. Martin elicits from her title figure not only a rich account of nineteenth-century masculinity but also a powerful argument regarding the place of gender in the construction of national identity. As it shows the importance of masculinity in shaping vexed negotiations among the identities of Scotland, England, and Great Britain, Martin's penetrating historical analysis enriches our understanding of a political struggle that continues to the present day." -- James Eli Adams, author of Dandies and Desert Saints: Styles of Victorian Masculinity
