About the book:

The fundamental changes that overtook Scotland in the Victorian and Edwardian eras challenged the older pattern of life and made this small society at the further extremity of north-west Europe a leader in industrialization and urbanization. Scotland passed, yoked to England, through the great arc of British world ascendancy in trade and power to the difficulties at the turn of the century of industrial maturity and foreign rivalry in trade and empire. Out of this arose for Scotsmen the problem of identity and achievement in so many spheres, including the cultural, religious, philosophical, political, legal and educational. The Scot as seen from abroad is still largely Victorian, displaying the virtues and faults of that age. At home the Victorian heritage remained of fundamental importance in the inter-war years, and indeed the early post-war phase. This absorbing study attempts to understand one of the most intriguing stages in the history of the Scots, that in which they made themselves important components in new societies in both hemispheres.
