Or Scotland and the Future

C M Grieve

Caledonia

Or the Future of the Scots

George Malcolm Thomson

Originally published in 1927

"It is relentless and terrible in its exposure of the realities that underlie the myth of "the canny Scot"." Irish Statesman

"As a piece of incisive writing and powerful yet restrained invective, Caledonia is specially notable." Spectator

Highly critical of post-Union policy in Scotland, this volume presents a scathing analysis of the Scot and his country in the first half of the twentieth century.

Hibernia or the Future of Ireland

Bolton C Waller

Originally published in 1928

"An earnest and challenging piece of work." Irish Times

"Notable in a notable series." Foreign Affairs
