From Trocchi to Trainspotting - Scottish Critical Theory Since 1960

Michael Gardiner

Published by Edinburgh University Press

  • Engaging polemic which connects Scottish literature with critical theory and continental thinking with Scottish philosophy.
  • Provides a needed corrective to the 'theory-fear' which has often stopped Scotland looking at its own Enlightenment.
  • Offers the first book-length commentary on contemporary Scottish writers, as well as re-positioning more familiar writers such as Muriel Spark and James Kelman."
