Synopsis:

Discover the horrible and hilarious secrets of Edinburgh's chequered (or perhaps tartaned) past. Fiona Macdonald presents a history of Scotland's most powerful city, from ancient to modern, gracious to grimy. Edinbroo! 'Auld Reekie', 'Quite enchanting - like fairlyland!','The Athens of the North', 'Edina, Scotia's darling seat', 'World Festival City'(modest, huh?)' or even a 'Mad God's Dream' of architectural splendour - Edinburgh has been all things to all men (and women). Fiona Macdonald explores the history of the city in this pocket-sized, quirky gift book.
