The definitive resource in Scottish ethnology
An indispensable research tool
A cultural benchmark for Scottish heritage
This major project of the European Ethnological research Centre is planned in thirteen volumes, plus this bibliography. Their overall aim is to examine the interlocking strands of history, language and traditional culture, in their international setting, that go into the making of a national identity. Though each volume tells a complete story in itself, and can stand on its own feet, the full role of Scottish Life and Society will become increasingly apparent as the volumes are published. It will set a cultural benchmark for the beginning of a new millennium, of immense value to educationists and to all who are interested in learning more about what had led up to the making of Scottish society as it is today.
Other volumes in the series are: An Introduction to Scottish Ethnology; Farming and Landscape; Scotlandís Buildings; Boats and Fishing, Coast and the Sea; The Food of the Scots; Heart and Home: The Culture of the Dwelling House; Crafts, Trades and Professions; Transport and Communications; The Individual and Community Life in Scotland; Oral Literature and Performance Culture; Institutions of Scotland: Education; Institutions of Scotland: Religious Expression; Institutions of Scotland: the Law.
