The Edinburgh History of Scottish LiteratureGeneral Editor: Ian BrownCo-editors: Thomas Owen Clancy, Susan Manning and Murray PittockThe Edinburgh History of Scottish Literature offers a major reinterpretation, re-evaluation and repositioning of the scope, nature and importance of Scottish Literature, arguably Scotland's most important and influential contribution to world culture. Drawing on the very best of recent scholarship, the History contributes a wide range of new and exciting insights. It takes full account of modern theory, but refuses to be in thrall to critical fashion. It is important not only for literary scholars, but because it changes the very way we think about what Scottishness is.The Edinburgh History of Scottish Literature, Volume 2: Enlightenment, Britain and Empire (1707-1918)Period Editor: Susan Manning General Editor: Ian BrownCo-editors: Thomas Owen Clancy and Murray PittockBetween 1707 and 1918, Scotland underwent arguably the most dramatic upheavals in its political, economic and social history. The Union with England, industrialisation and Scotland's subsequent defining contributions throughout the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries to the culture of Britain and Empire are reflected in the transformative energies of Scottish literature and literary institutions in the period.
