The Edinburgh companion to contemporary Scottish literature
More than forty original essays written by critics from around the world examine the cultural and political role of Scottish writing since the country's referendum on national self-rule in 1997. Essays address issues of class, sexuality, gender, nationhood, globalization, cosmopolitan citizenship, and multiculturalism, and the specific political circumstances and aesthetic agendas behind them. The collection defines a new period in Scottish literary history and heralds in a new era in the criticism of Scottish writing.
