About the BookThis 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.

It seeks to set a cultural benchmark for the beginning of a new millennium, which should be of 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.
