Edited by: Liam McIlvanney, Ray Ryan

Recent years have seen the consolidation of a new field of academic inquiry: Irish-Scottish Studies. This specially commissioned volume is the most comprehensive comparative study yet of the history, culture, languages and literatures of Ireland and Scotland. Topics include drama and film, Romanticism and genre, sport and Celticism, Presbyterianism and nationalism. An afterword from Tom Devine assesses the current state and shape of the field.
