This is one of the few books to have been written about the fledgling Scottish film industry and should be read by all who have an interest in this area of study. Coupled with reference to contemporary Scottish literature, this book charts the themes and representations of Scottish culture on the screen with reference to both cinema and television. A great companion to Petrie's other work in the same area, Screening Scotland. Both are vital sources of information and are presented in such a way as to be totally readable at the same time. Jargon is kept to a minimum and the book flows easily through topics such as national identity and representation with direct references to the works of Irvine Welsh, Bill Douglas, Lynne Ramsay, Bill Forsyth and Ian Rankin. Easy to read and made my dissertation research a lot more interesting and less of a chore!
