Scotland's Story: A New Perspective
Collins, 1984 - 358 pages
Fighting endless hardship, at war with the English for the greater part of their history and, in their diversity, often warring amongst themselves, the Scottish people have given the world an enormous wealth of creativity and inventive genius out of all proportion to their numbers. This reveals the Scots as they are, and how they have become so: one of the smallest but most influential countries in the world.
