About This Book

Explores theconnectedness 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 theimportance 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 asto those working in the media, in sport, in literature and in music.
