Jeremy Crang, Edward Spiers & Mathew Strickland (EIBF Review)

In his introductory discussion of ‘A Military History of Scotland’ Edward Spiers was careful to point out that the book in question, some 900 pages in length, weighty in both senses and costing £150 was neither ‘definitive’ nor ‘comprehensive’, as a number of journalists had claimed.

‘Jesus was a Scotsman’ could be seen as contentious title for a discussion, but it turns out to be a thoroughly apt one for this marking of the (gey near) 30th anniversary of the publication in 1983 of William Laughton Lorimer's translation of The New Testament into Scots.
