Museum Tusculanum Press, 2007 - History - 154 pages
This book Vol. 7 of the series Angles on the English-Speaking World marks the 300th anniversary of the union of the two kingdoms of Scotland and England. The nature and development of the relations between these constituent parts of the United Kingdom is a fascinating topic. Some of the contributions to this volume deal with the union in a comparative European context. Both Scottish nationalism and Scottish unionism are analyzed, and Anglo-Scottish relations are looked at from historical, sociological, linguistic, and literary angles. The contributions have been written by distinguished scholars based in Scotland (Graham Caie, David McCrone, Steve Murdoch, John R. Young, and Karina Westermann), England (Paul Ward) and Denmark (Henrik Halkier, Charles Lock, Jens Rahbek Rasmussen, and Robert C. Thomsen).
