About this item
This book searches for what community means and the ways it is represented in Scottish literature from the late nineteenth to the early twenty-first century. This first survey of its kind, the contributions cover a wide terrain, focusing on more than just national community. In the context of the increasing autonomy of the present, Lyall cites community as a highly pertinent contemporary issue. Questions considered include: Is community exclusionary, a means of dividing people and keeping out the unwanted? and Does community, understood as a sense of togetherness and shared values, even exist in our time of capitalist individualism and national borders?
