Explores the connectedness of the diaspora to the homeland from a variety of different perspectives

This book explores a range of different perspectives on the Scottish diaspora, reflecting a growing interest in the subject from academics, politicians and policy makers and coinciding with Scotland's second year of homecoming in 2014. The Scottish Government has actively developed a diaspora strategy, not least in order to encourage 'roots tourism', as those individuals of Scots descent come back to visit their 'homeland' diaspora.

Key Features

* Examines the importance of links within the Scottish diaspora for Scots both at home and abroad.
* Multi-disciplinary perspectives from literature to sport
* Of interest to policy makers, genealogists, tourism bodies, politicians and general public

The Scots form one of the world's largest diasporas, with around 30 million people worldwide claiming a Scottish ancestry. There are few countries around the globe without a Caledonian Society, a Burns Club, a Scottish country dance society, or similar organisation. The diaspora is therefore of interest to politicians, to public policy makers and to Scottish business; as well as to those working in the media, in sport, in literature and in music.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"In 2011 Tom Devine suggested that Scottish diaspora studies were still in their intellectual infancy, despite the immense contributions made by some researchers over the last few years. His words did not go unnoticed; the volume under review is an impressive response." -- Barbara C. Murison, University of Western Ontario, Northern Scotland
