The Real Mackay tells the life story of one of football's genuine legends, a man whose presence in any team spurred them on to championship-winning form: Dave Mackay. It is the refreshing, honest and action-packed autobiography of a man who was at the centre of many of the biggest stories of British football for almost three decades. Mackay debuted for Hearts in 1953, by which time he had already made his mark at junior level. At the time he signed for the Edinburgh club, they had not won a major honour for almost fifty years; but over the next six seasons, Hearts went on to win the Scottish Cup and League, as well as twice winning the Scottish League Cup. It is no coincidence that Mackay's arrival at Tynecastle marked the beginning of what is now viewed as the club's golden age. In 1959, Dave was transferred south to join Tottenham Hotspur, who were at that time languishing near the foot of the English First Division. During the 1960-61 season, Spurs became the first side in the twentieth century to win the Double and went on to win the FA Cup twice more, along with the European Cup-Winners' Cup. In 1968, Mackay joined Derby County, who were lowly placed in the English Second Division. As captain, he led the team up the table and they finished as champions. Mackay was awarded the coveted Football Writers' Association Footballer of the Year trophy - a fitting end to a remarkable playing career. In this absorbing autobiography, Mackay revisits his glorious playing days and reflects on his subsequent managerial career. He reveals details of his time as a successful manager in the developing Middle East game and recounts that on his return to management in England he discovered that football had changed radically. The Real Mackay is as uncompromising, determined and controversial as the player himself.

Culture, Nation, and the New Scottish Parliament asserts that while Scotland's new Parliament (1999) is a creation of laws, politics, and economics, some of the forces underpinning it are cultural, therefore constantly alive and insistently creative. Scotland may not be confined by, but has always lived within and moved forward and outward, through its signs and stories. In the moment of the new Parliament, it is time to cast up Scotland's accounts of past and present, and to review the nation's futures. Readers will find the usual signs of Scotland foregrounded, questioned, and re-energized as contributors trace the dynamic toward a Scottish Parliament. And they will find new signs, whether sounds, sights, or souvenirs come into play, revealing today's performance of a dynamic Scotland. Caroline McCracken-Flesher teaches the novel, the British eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, Scottish literature, and literary theory at the University of Wyoming.

Can it really be true that 'golf' stands for 'Gentlemen Only Ladies Forbidden'? Or that 'rule of thumb' comes from an archaic legal principle that a man may chastise his wife, but only with a rod no thicker than his thumb? These and hundreds of other stories are commonly told and retold whenever people meet. They grow up in part because expressions are often genuinely mysterious. Why, for example, are satisfying meals 'square' rather than any other shape? And how did anyone ever come up with the idea that if you're competent at something you can 'cut the mustard'? Michael Quinion here retells many of the more bizarre tales, and explains their real origins where they're known. This is a fascinating treasure-trove of fiction and fact for anyone interested in language.

Scottish Theatre: Diversity, Language, Continuity

Challenging the dominant view of a broken and discontinuous dramatic culture in Scotland, this book outlines the variety and richness of the nation ́s performance traditions and multilingual theatre history. Brown illuminates enduring strands of hybridity and diversity which use theatre and theatricality as a means of challenging establishment views, and of exploring social, political, and religious change. He describes the ways in which politically and religiously divisive moments in Scottish history, such as the Reformation and political Union, fostered alternative dramatic modes and means of expression. This major revisionist history also analyses the changing relationships between drama, culture, and political change in Scotland in the 20th and 21st centuries, drawing on the work of an extensive range of modern and contemporary Scottish playwrights and drama practitioners. Ian Brown is a playwright, poet and Professor of Drama at Kingston University, London. Until recently Chair of the Scottish Society of Playwrights, he was General Editor of the Edinburgh History of Scottish Theatre (EUP, 2007) and editor of From Tartan to Tartanry: Scottish Culture, History and Myth (EUP, 2010) and The Edinburgh Companion to Scottish Drama (EUP, 2011). He has published widely on theatre, cultural policy and literature and language.

"No Arts; No Letters; No Society; and which is worst of all, ... the life of man, solitary, poor, nasty, brutish, and short."—Thomas Hobbes (1588–1679) The University of Liverpool pioneered the system, now general among British universities, whereby departments of related disciplines are grouped into "Faculties" with administrative and academic responsibilities and powers. The first Faculty at Liverpool with these commitments was the Arts Faculty, whose initial meeting was held in December 1896. Commemoration of the centenary of the Arts Faculty was marked by the publication of this volume. The book contains reminiscences by former students relating to each decade of the century, and also the reminiscences of a number of former Deans. Essays "informative and critical" have been contributed by recent and present members of staff. They include an account of the buildings occupied by – and in some instances designed for – the Faculty of Arts; a 1950s dialogue by the late Kenneth Muir, the distinguished Shakespeare scholar; and a study of J. M. Mackay, the Highlander who in the 1890s was the prime advocate of a Faculty system. The volume concludes with an essay by Professor Stephen R. L. Clark analyzing the position of Arts today and pointing to the future.
