In part 1 of this book, you will discover topics such as. Medieval Strife; The Emergence of the Scottish Nation-State; The Golden AgeReviews:

In the s several Scottish performers, including the Average White Band and Rod Stewart (who was born in London to a Scottish family), had to relocate to the United States to experience wide-reaching success. At the turn of the s, however, a small but significant music scene developed in both Scotland’s official capital, Edinburgh, and its commercial and industrial capital, Glasgow.

Scottish art is the body of visual art made in what is now Scotland, or about Scottish subjects, since prehistoric times.
