50 PEOPLE WHO SCREWED UP SCOTLAND

ALLAN BROWN    Book Number: 90205    Product format: Paperback

'The Celt is supposed to be spiritually superior to the Saxon - simpler, more creative, less vulgar, less snobbish etc.' wrote George Orwell in 1945. The 50 names in the book compromise a brilliant cast of villains and entertainers and just a few politicians and include Stuart Adamson, the Bay City Rollers, Alexander Graham Bell, Bonnie Prince Charlie, Jimmy Boyle, Dan Brown, Robert Burns, Billy Connolly, Sir Sean Connery, Alan Cumming, Tam Cowan, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Mel Gibson, Alex Harvey, Sir John Lockhart-Ross, Lulu, Hugh MacDiarmid, Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Lord Reith and Jack Vettriano among them. Super comic portraits of the most malignant numpties in Scottish history sifted from the Sporran-fluff of sentiment to isolate those who perpetuate half truths like Scotland invented the telephone, or that Sean Connery might one day bother to actually live there. 266pp, caricature cartoons for each. Paperback.
