Omtale Scotland's Future Culture
The culture of all nations is rooted in past experience,
individual and communal. In Scotland's Future History
McHardy looked at the misrepresentation of so much
of Scotland's political and social history. In this new
volume he takes a wider look at aspects of Scotland's
culture that have been at the heart of how we have
developed into who we are in today's world. Topics
include literature, religion, history and story, the Radical
1790s, the remarkable Douglas Young and an
introduction to Geomythography, a new way of melding
prehistory and history to present a new and refreshing
way seeing our past.


Understanding our past is vital to the process of building
a new Scotland in the years ahead. As Scotland moves
towards reclaiming her status among the nations of the
world it is important that we understand just how
culturally distinctive we are. Being Scottish is no better
than having any other nationality, but is is certainly no
worse, and as this work hopefully shows, it is something
worth celebrating.
