'They fuck you up, your mum and dad,' the poet Philip Larkin wrote a few decades ago. Sometimes more, sometimes less explicitly, Scottish authors of the past twenty years have written down their point of view on the state of the working-class family. This study deals with nineteen novels written between 1984 and 1994 and two precursors written about ten years earlier. Following the family sociologists' model of the family life cycle, the study examines the vital stages of family life in novels spanning four generations of Scottish writers, from Robin Jenkins (b. 1912) to A. L. Kennedy (b. 1965).

Sport is frequently considered to be an aspect of popular culture that is, or should be, untainted by the political. However, there is a broad consensus among academics that sport is often at the heart of the political and the political is often central to sport. From the 1936 Olympic Games in Nazi Germany to the civil unrest that preceded the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, sport and politics have remained symbiotic bedfellows. The Routledge Handbook of Sport and Politics goes further than any other book in surveying the complex, embedded relationships between sport and politics. With sections addressing ideologies, nation and statehood, corporate politics, political activism, social justice, and the politics of sports events, it introduces the conceptual foundations that underpin our understanding of the sport-politics nexus and examines emergent issues in this field of study. Including in-depth case studies from North America, South America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia, this is an essential reference for anybody with an interest in the social scientific study of sport.
