Stand fast, Craig-Royston! A novel by William Black( Book )

49 editions published between 1890 and 1989 in 3 languages and held by 293 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Old Mr. Bethune imagines himself the descendant of an ancient Scotch family, whose motto for centuries has been "Stand Fast, Craig-Royston." He is engaged in getting up a work on Scotch ballad poetry, and imagines he has squandered a fortune. He feels the world owes him a living, and, greatly to his grand-daughter Maisie's mortification, he accepts favors from all sides. The plot enables Black to introduce quotations from Scotch literature with artistic effect. The romantic interest is slight but tender and pretty. The descriptions of Scotch scenery, manners and customs are elaborated with exquisite care. --Literary News, Feb. 1891

Donald Ross of Heimra by William Black( Book )

50 editions published between 1 and 2007 in English and German and held by 281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Through a series of urban case studies, Queer Cities, Queer Cultures examines the articulation of particular subcultures and forms of expression with the broader stories we tell about postwar Europe and particular watershed moments. It considers queer life in the selected cities in relation to the advent and end of Cold War polarization, and considers the degree to which the iconic events of 1945, 1968, and 1989 influenced the social and sexual climate of the ensuing decades. It raises questions about the form and structure of the 1960s sexual revolution, and forces us to think about how we define sexual liberalization and where, how and on whose terms it occurs. The book also explores the role of America in shaping particular forms of subculture; the significance of changes in legal codes; modes of queer consumption and displays of community; the difficult fit of queer (as opposed to gay and lesbian) politics in liberal democracies; the challenge of AIDS; and the arrival of the Internet"--
