Reviews

Here is a very welcome addition to the EUP series of volumes, edited by Chris Whatley and Elizabeth Foyster, A History of Everyday Life in Scotland... It will find its way on to undergraduate and postgraduate reading lists, and hopefully on to many other twentyfirst century bookshelves. -- Jim Philips, University of Glasgow Journal of Scottish Historical Studies In any number of ways, this is a welcome and stimulating book. As one would expect, each chapter is informed by deep familiarity with both the secondary literature and a wide range of primary materials, making it a valuable jumping-off point for further research (something which is further facilitated by the ubiquitous lists of supplementary reading). Moreover, the book is heavily infused with an interdisciplinary ethos. In a number of chapters, conventional historical scholarship overlaps with sociology and cultural studies. Even more striking is the broad array of methodologies on display. -- Allan Kennedy, University of Stirling History Scotland Here is a very welcome addition to the EUP series of volumes, edited by Chris Whatley and Elizabeth Foyster, A History of Everyday Life in Scotland...
