About this title

Synopsis:

It would be hard to imagine a collection of people more diverse than those interviewed here, from a 24 year-old international women's footballer, to a world-renowned photographer famous for images of world leaders and iconic celebrities like the Beatles, to a retired Reverend. But a simple and powerful connection links them all: they are all Scots abroad. This look at the fascinating lives of a fraction of Scotland's expat community, explores how they feel their home country helped shape them, the motivations they had for moving away and the perspectives (both good and bad) that distance has lent them of the land they left behind.

About the Author:

RT HON HENRY McLEISH began his political career in local government in 1974, and was leader of Fife Regional Council for five years. He was elected as an MP in 1987 and became Minister for Devolution and Home Affairs from 1997 to 1999. In the first Scottish Parliament he was Minister for Enterprise and Lifelong Learning from 1999, and in 2000 he became First Minister of Scotland until 2001. Resigning from politics in 2003, he is now an adviser and lectures internationally on a variety of topics. He frequently appears on TV and radio, and is interviewed for various newspapers and magazines.
