Scotland, its people, and its history have long been a source of considerable fascination and inspiration for filmmakers, film scholars, and film audiences worldwide. A significant number of critically acclaimed films made in the last 25 years have ignited passionate conversations and debates about Scottish national cinema. Its historical, industrial, and cultural complexities have made it all the more a focus of attention for both popular audiences and scholarly critics. This volume provides an introduction to many of Scottish cinema's most important and influential themes and issues, films, and filmmakers, while adding to the ongoing discussion concerning how to make sense of Scotland's cinematic traditions and contributions.
- Scotland Before The Industrial Revolution: An Economic And Social History, C1050-C1750
- Hardback - Routledge
This portrait of medieval and early modern Scotland through to the Union and its aftermath has no current rival in chronological range, thematic scope and richness of detail. Ian Whyte pays due attention to the wide regional variations within Scotland itself and to the distinctive elements of her economy and society; but he also highlights the many parallels between the Scottish experience and that of her neighbours, especially England. The result sets the development of Scotland within its British context and beyond, in a book that will interest and delight far more than Scottish specialists alone.
