Book Summary

The culture of all nations is rooted in past experience,individual and communal. In Scotland's Future HistoryMcHardy looked at the misrepresentation of so muchof Scotland's political and social history. In this newvolume he takes a wider look at aspects of Scotland'sculture that have been at the heart of how we havedeveloped into who we are in today's world. Topicsinclude literature, religion, history and story, the Radical1790s, the remarkable Douglas Young and anintroduction to Geomythography, a new way of melding prehistory and history to present a new and refreshingway seeing our past.

Understanding our past is vital to the process of buildinga new Scotland in the years ahead. As Scotland movestowards reclaiming her status among the nations of theworld it is important that we understand just howculturally distinctive we are. Being Scottish is no better than having any other nationality, but is is certainly noworse, and as this work hopefully shows, it is somethingworth celebrating.
