Scotland's domestic life
Tuckwell Press in association with The European Ethnological Research Centre, 2006 - Social Science - 928 pages
The story of 'home life' in Scotland is one which is familiar and varied. This wide-ranging volume considers Scotland's domestic life by examining that variety and considering changes in the structures in which Scots have lived and the ways in which they have lived in those homes. The great advantage of studying domestic life is that it is something to which everyone can relate, no matter his or her background. Most of us are in some way already ethnologists of the home. Scottish Life and Society: A Compendium of Scottish Ethnology is a major project of the European Ethnological Research Centre in fourteen volumes. Its overall aim is to examine the interlocking strands of history, language and traditional culture within an international context and their contribution to the making of a national identity. Each volume is a detailed examination of a societal topic and can stand alone. Together, the fourteen volumes set a cultural benchmark for the new millennium and are of immense value to our understanding of what has shaped Scottish society today.
