    Common Cause
    Stuart Allan - Paperback - NMS
    In 1914, as the world prepared for war, thousands of men enlisted in Scotland. But thousands more Scots, and those of Scottish descent, joined up across the world. As the optimism of 1914 gave way to the grim reality of years of conflict, the human cost of fighting the First World War became a foundation of national consciousness - for Canada at Vimy Ridge, for Australia and New Zealand at Gallipoli, for South Africa at Delville Wood. Based on the exhibition at the National Museum of Scotland (11 July to 12 October 2014) this book explores how military service was related to other expressions of Scottish identity. And, following the structure of the exhibition, personal story vignettes, based on National Museum Scotland and on international collections, will reinforce the main themes of migration, multiple identity and loss.

    Closed Doors
    Lisa O'Donnell - Paperback - Windmill Books
    11-year-old Michael Murray is the best at two things: keepy-uppies and keeping secrets. His family think he's too young to hear grown-up stuff, but he listens at doors; it's the only way to find out anything. And Michael's heard a secret, one that might explain the bruises on his mother's face. When the whispers at home and on the street become too loud to ignore, Michael begins to wonder if there is an even bigger secret he doesn't know about. Scared of what might happen if anyone finds out, and desperate for life to return to normal, Michael sets out to piece together the truth.

He left Paris after avenging the murder of his father, Sir Henry Maxted, a senior member of the British delegation to the post-war peace conference. But he was convinced there was more - much more - to be discovered about what Sir Henry had been trying to accomplish. And he suspected elusive German spymaster Fritz Lemmer knew the truth of it. Now, enlisted under false colours in Lemmer's service but with his loyalty pledged to the British Secret Service, Max sets out on his first - and possibly last - mission for Lemmer.

    Richie McCaffery - Paperback - Nine Arches
    Richie McCaffrey's debut collection of poems begins in a dedication and ends with ghosts - in between lies hoards of artefacts and long-forgotten antiques; a police whistle, a tarnished silver spoon, the bookmark lodged in a boring book decades before that sings of a lost age.

    John Finlay - Paperback - Edinburgh University Press

    Contemporary American Trauma Narratives
    Alan Gibbs - Hardback - Edinburgh University Press
    Trauma has become an important and influential paradigm in, and for reading, contemporary American literature, and yet conventional critical interpretations of this phenomenon can be formulaic and clichéd. Alan Gibbs breaks away from these conventional, heavily psychoanalytic, ways of understanding trauma. He looks at the impact of narratives with the perpetrator as protagonist, the so-called 'perpetrator narratives', their characteristics, and their impact.
