Golf is a Scottish game. It has been played by the Scots for centuries, and Scotland is its spiritual and cultural home. This is a book devoted to one nation's devotion to a game of stick and ball which today casts its enchantment over the entire world. The beginnings of golf and its early development are shrouded in mystery and are part fact and part fable. The Scottish Golf Book separates one from the other as it traces the early history of golf to the multimillion-dollar, worldwide obsession it has become today. Images from the earliest days of Scottish photography recall titanic battles between the early superstars of the game, while the modern lens takes the reader on a spectacular and magical journey around the historic, the classic, and the hidden treasures of Scotland's finest courses.

Imagining Scotland

Imagining Scotland

This illustrated text looks at the portrayal of Scotland in tourist promotional literature from the mid-eighteenth century to the present day, with illustrations drawn from many parts of continental Europe and North America.

Every year, thousands of tourists are drawn to Scotland by images of pipers and fairy-tale castles, Highland games and haggis, misty glens and heather, and, despite widespread disparagement, that imagery is still as carefully nurtured by indigenous tourist agencies as by the international tourist industry. This illustrated text looks at the portrayal of Scotland in tourist promotional literature from the mid-eighteenth century to the present day, with illustrations drawn from many parts of continental Europe and North America. After providing an analytical framework for the interpretation of tourist promotional imagery, the early chapters focus on the all-important creation of the Highland myth through the reports of eighteenth and nineteenth century travellers, its enhancement as tourism grew from 1850 onwards - completely belying the contemporary reality of the Highland clearances - and its apotheosis in the film-maker's art. Subsequent chapters turn to the selling of urban Scotland, looking at the long-standing marketing of Edinburgh and more recent attempts to sell Glasgow as a cultural centre.
