    The Invention Of Scotland: Myth And History
    H. R. Trevor-Roper - Paperback - Yale University Press
    Trevor-Roper argues that while Anglo-Saxon culture spawned next to no myths, myth has played a central role in the development of Scottish identity.

    The Vogue For Russia: Modernism And The Unseen In Britain, 1900-1930
    Caroline Maclean - Hardback - Edinburgh University Press
    How did the British fascination with Russian arts, politics, and society at the start of the 20th century lead to a renewed interest in mysticism? How did ideas of Russianness and 'the Russian soul', prompted by the arrival in Britain of the Ballets Russes and the rise of revolutionary ideals, attach themselves to the existing British fashion for theosophy, vitalism, and occultism? In answering these questions, this study explores the overlap between Slavophilia and mysticism in Britain during a time of phenomenal social, political, and cultural change.
