These soul-searching questions are probed in this timely book by prize-winning author and journalist, Angus Calder. It ia a journey through many possible Scotlands - fictionalised, idealised, and politicised. This perceptive and often highly personal writing shows the sope of Calder's analytical power. Fact or fiction, individual or international, politics or poetry, statistics or statehood, no subject is taboo in a volume that offers an overview of the vicissitudes and changing nature of Scottishness.
