(http://www.ibtauris.com/Books/The arts/Film TV radio/Films cinema/The New Scottish Cinema.aspx) Neville, Cynthia J. and Grant Simpson (eds.), The Acts of Alexander III King of Scots 1249- 1286, Edinburgh: Edinburgh University Press 2012 (hardback £ 95.00) Brings together 330 legal documents from the reign of King Alexander III of Scotland. This volume contains the full texts of 175 acts issued under the seal of King Alexander III, together with notes on a further 155 'lost acts' that survive only in notices. These acts, many of which have never been published before, have been collected from a variety of archives in Scotland, England, Belgium and France. The Introduction examines the administrative contexts of the later thirteenth century in which the royal chancery drafted and authenticated charters, brieves and other written instruments, and discusses the varied sources from which the collection is compiled. The texts include full Latin transcriptions and detailed English-language summaries of the contents of each act, together with a series of notes and comments on context and significance. By drawing together both original archive sources and widely scattered published sources, the volume offers a unique opportunity to understand how Scottish government and administration operated in the key period before the reign of Robert Bruce.

He managed to conceal his identity and motives and during the course of a four-month assignation in 1966 he observed closely the gang members and concluded that the boys were 'afraid of fighting other gangs but more afraid of not fighting them.' Ultimately it was 'the struggle between identification with the boys and abhorrence of their violence that forced me to quit.' This book became one of the first published observations of a Glasgow gang and as such has stood the test of time as a number of factors that Patrick identified as contributing to the growth of gang culture still remain in existence today, most crucially poverty, grim housing conditions and unemployment. This is a portrait of gang culture before the drug barons moved in and created another level of violence and as such it deserves its cult status.

Langoustines from the West Coast of Scotland are eaten at tables all over Europe; the Scottish Aberdeen Angus has long been the byword for quality meat; Scottish soft raspberries and tayberries are considered the finest available, and so the list goes on! Scottish kitchens are moving away from the global produce offered by supermarkets and are returning to locally-produced, seasonal food. Local growers and producers are supplying markets from the Borders up to Orkney and they are becoming increasingly popular. Farmers' markets in Scotland are a mix of greengrocer, butcher, garden-centre, off-licence, game dealer, delicatessen and more. The buyer has the opportunity to meet and speak to each farmer about the produce, making the shopping experience enjoyable and personal. The Scottish Farmers' Market Cookbook is a collection of recipes from producers and stallholders and reflects the produce that can be found at these Markets. The recipes are simple and delicious and range from Beef sausages with Wild Mushrooms poached in Red Wine, to

Pork and Apple with Ginger Jam; from Beetroot and Goats Cheese Starter to Apple Water Ice. As well as delicious, easy-to-use recipes, the Scottish Farmers' Market Cookbook includes sections on seasonal growth, an availability guide, a producers list, farmers' market venues, and conversion chart for weights and measures. This cookbook demonstrates that fine cooking need not be difficult and shopping at the Farmers' Market for all your ingredients will produce the best in taste and guarantee a fresh, quality meal. A handy, easy to use size that can be taken around on Farmers' Market days, with sections for notes, this book will prove to be indispensable!

Andreas Pecar führt vor, wie der politische Biblizismus sowohl zur Legitimitätssteigerung der Monarchie Verwendung fand, als auch von zahlreichen Kritikern dazu genutzt wurde, die Legitimität der Politik der Stuartkönige Jakob VI./I. und Karl I. in Frage zu stellen und damit den Ausbruch des englischen Bürgerkrieges zu begünstigen.Ausgangspunkt dieser Untersuchung ist die Annahme, dass es politisch bedeutsam ist, aus welchen Autoritätsquellen sich die Argumente im politischen Diskurs jeweils speisten. Der Autor führt vor, wie der politische Diskurs in England und Schottland nach der Reformation wesentlich von Argumenten, Erzählungen und Normen geprägt wurde, die man den Schriften der Bibel entnahm. Für die Legitimität der Monarchie als Herrschaftsform und die politische Handlungsfähigkeit der Monarchen hatte die politische Sprache des Biblizismus weitreichende Folgen. Für den Zeitraum von der Reformation bis zum Ausbruch des Bürgerkrieges wird dargelegt, wie der politische Biblizismus in England ebenso wie in Schottland sowohl zur Legitimitätssteigerung der Monarchie Verwendung fand, als auch von zahlreichen Kritikern dazu genutzt wurde, die Legitimität der Politik der Stuartkönige Jakob VI./I. und Karl I. in Frage zu stellen und damit den Ausbruch des Bürgerkrieges zu begünstigen. (http://www.oldenbourg-verlag.de/wissenschaftsverlag/macht-schrift/9783486701012) Philip, Robert, Scottish Sporting Legends, Edinburgh: Mainstream Publishing 2012 (paperback £7.99) Scotland may not have won a World Cup (yet!), but many of the country's sportsmen and women are revered as global legends. In football, the likes of Denis Law, 'Slim' Jim Baxter and Jimmy 'Jinky' Johnstone would not have looked out of place in the canary yellow of Brazil, while managers Sir Matt Busby, Bill Shankly and Jock Stein have become part of football folklore, as has Sir Alex Ferguson in more recent times. Amazingly, Scots have conquered the world in just about every major sport: Jim Clark and Sir Jackie Stewart in Formula One, Ken Buchanan and Benny Lynch in the boxing ring, sprinters Allan Wells and Eric Liddell on the Olympic track; and, as befits a nation renowned as the 'home of golf', Sandy Lyle was recognised as the greatest player on the planet upon winning the Masters in 1988. Scottish sport is the richest of tapestries and in Scottish Sporting Legends the cream of the crop are entertainingly profiled in a revealing collection of pen portraits of stars past and present.
