Few people can be unaware of the First International Haggis Symposium, if only because of the sensational manner in which it came to an end. However, a great deal of constructive work was presented, some radical theories were introduced, and valuable discussions were held. Challenging much of the nonsense written about haggis over the years the Symposium instead centres on the important intellectual questions surrounding this mystical Scottish dish. From the evolution of the haggis and its role in history (did you know that Robert the Bruce won his kingdom by the use of a particularly superb haggis recipe?) to the taboo subject of haggiphilia - the love that dare not speak its name. "Great Chieftain" is edited by the haggis-obsessed husband and wife partnership of Florence and Duncan MacPill, who are assisted by the renowned Scottish humour writer David S Ross.
