Scotland and Nationalism provides an authoritative survey of Scottish social and political history from 1707 to the present day. Focusing on political nationalism in Scotland, Christopher Harvie examines why this nationalism remained apparently in abeyance for two and a half centuries, and why it became so relevant in the second half of the twentieth century.
This fourth edition brings the story and historiography of Scottish society and politics up-to-date. Additions also include a brand new biographical index of key personalities, along with a glossary of nationalist groups.

About the author (2004)

Christopher Harvie, Professor of British and Irish Studies at Tubingen University, made himself the leading historian of twentieth-century Scotland with two classic works, Scotland and Nationalism (1977, third edition 1998) and No Gods and Precious Few Heroes: Twentieth-Century Scotland (1981, third
edition, 2000). Educated at the High School and University of Edinburgh, a pioneer of distance learning at the Open University, and a polymath in the tradition of Adam Smith and Patrick Geddes, Harvie now brings his interest in technology, politics and culture, displayed in The Lights of
Liberalism (on the Oxbridge elite, 1976), The Centre of Things (on political fiction, 1991) and Fool's Gold (on North Sea oil, 1994) to bear on his own country, in A Short History of Scotland.
