A Global Force

War, Identities and Scotland's Diaspora

edited by David Forsyth and Wendy Ugolini

Published by Edinburgh University Press

  • Develops a critical understanding of the complex connections between Scotland and its diasporic communities, addressing wider questions of ethnicity, identity and national belonging
  • Provides five conceptual case studies of how Scottish diaspora in different parts of the Commonwealth embraced or rejected Scottish military culture in forging their identities: England; North America; South Africa; Australia & New Zealand
  • Weaves the story of Scotland's global diaspora through the emergent national narratives of Commonwealth nations
  • Looks at the operation of 'military Scottishness' in the late nineteenth and twentieth centuries
