Scotland, they agree, can be better understood through studying its sports and popular culture. The volume not only acknowledges the history involving people and organisations, but that sport is also affected by the changing patterns of social organisation and social development in Scotland. The wide-ranging study encompasses the historical and contemporary, the male and the female, the royal and the commoner, the middle class and working class aspects of Scottish sport, as well as the role of the media and the churches in the creation of national sporting myths.
