influences as well as

influences as well as those of Anglophone writers such as Eliot, Joyce, Pound and Lawrence, and contributed to the development of what we now call modernism. This collection of essays, from fourteen scholars, illustrates the strongly international and modernist dimension of Scotland's interwar revival, and illuminates the relationships between Scottish and non-Scottish writers and contexts. It also includes two chapters on the contribution made to this revival by Scottish visual art and music. These essays are based on papers originally presented at the 38th ASLS Annual Conference, 'Scottish and International Modernism', held at the University of Stirling, 6–7 June 2009. http://www.arts.gla.ac.uk/ScotLit/ASLS/Modernisms.html Fallow, Jeff, Scotland: A Graphic History, Edinburgh: Luath 2012 (paperback £9.99) This is a concise history of Scotland in the form of a graphic novel. Both witty and informative, the book covers everything from the dinosaurs to David Cameron, with a plethora of battles, conspiracies, poets and politicians in between. Entertaining and accessible, this will appeal to teenage school kids, students, visitors and anyone else with an interest in Scottish history. (http://www.luath.co.uk/books/coming-soon/scotland-a-graphic-history.html) Finlay, Richard, Modern Scotland 1914-2000, London: Profile 2011 (ebook £12.99) A major history of the Scottish people in the twentieth century - from the First World War, which radically altered the political, social and economic landscape of the country, to the creation of the Scottish parliament in 2000. Richard Finlay's comprehensive narrative and analysis consider the major themes of the century - whether working-class militancy or the (decline and) rise of Scottish nationalism, poverty or social reconstruction, the 'new Scots' from Asia or land problems in the Highlands, the Scottish cultural renaissance or popular culture. But it also in telling detail shows how these themes were played out in particular communities and affected the lives of individuals. From the women who worked in munitions factories to the children in the school playground, from the Tory faithful of Dumfries to the union men of Linwood, from the cinema-goers of 1930s Aberdeen to crofters of Knoydart who recently succeeded in buying their land, Richard Finlay gives a vivid picture of contemporary Scotland, and the people who have shaped it.

Using a variety of sources (both men's and women's correspondence, accounts, bills, memoirs and other family papers), this book investigates the ways in which polite social practices and expectations influenced the experience of elite femininity in Scotland in the eighteenth century. It explores women's education and upbringing; their reading practices; the meanings of the social spaces and activities in which they engaged and how this fed over into the realm of politics; and the fashion for tourism at home and abroad. It also asks how elite women used polite social spaces and practices to extend their mental horizons and to form a sense of belonging to a public at a time when Scotland was among the most intellectually vibrant societies in Europe.

To Scots the world over, Tam o'Shanter – funny, scurrilous, gloriously inventive – has achieved iconic status. Full of marvellous images it waited over 200 years for the partner who could realise the vision in the words. That partner was Sandy Goudie. His cycle of Burns paintings, worked on for many years, captures all the facets of this marvellous poem and are full of energy and life. Originally planned to be bought as a cycle by the National Gallery, the bulk of the paintings now reside in Rozelle House in Ayrshire. However Sandy continued to work on Tam until the end of his life and for the first time this book matches together Burns peerless poem with the full range of Sandy's paintings and drawings. Introduced and edited by Ted Cowan and Alan Riach of Glasgow University, this is not simply a beautiful book but the definitive edition of Burns' masterpiece. http://www.birlinn.co.uk/LimitedEditions/tam.html Hammersley, Richard and Phil Dalgarno, Drugs, Edinburgh: Dunedin Academic Press 2012 (paperback £ 16.50) Depicting Scottish drugs policy and practice over a thirty year period to 2012 the authors show how modern drugs policy evolved in a small country with liberal traditions and the highest rates of substance use problems in Europe.
