Scottish life and society : a compendium of Scottish ethnology by Alexander Fenton( Book )

8 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in English and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This major project comprises fourteen thematically arranged volumes. The aim of the Compendium is to examine the interlocking strands of history and traditional culture that go into the making of a national identity, in an up-to-date synthesis of the current state of knowledge. By bringing together information from a variety of sources, the Compendium not only provides a digest of topics, but also points towards areas for new investigation. The Compendium concentrates upon the present and the historical period and does not generally deal with prehistory, although for certain themes, such as the development of agriculture and buildings, early evidence is taken into account. Where appropriate, reference is made to foreign parallels and to the influence on Scotland of the cultures of neighbouring peoples. Scottish influence on the world at large is also taken into account, whether in relation to urban or rural, maritime or land-based topics. Material and non-material aspects of history and tradition are considered equally, at all levels of society, indeed oftentimes focusing on the interaction between people of differing social strata

Man, food and milieu : a Swedish approach to food ethnology by Nils Arvid Bringéus( Book )

3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this selection of writings on food Professor Bringeus demonstrates the fundamental importance of eating not only as a means of satisfying bodily needs, but also as an aspect of culture that combines material, social and spiritual factors. It tells much of Swedish practices, but in doing so exemplifies European methods of approach."--Jacket
Glenesk : the history and culture of an Angus community by Margaret Fairweather Michie( Book )

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Glenesk is one of the most beautiful of the Angus glens. Though surrounded by high peaks in its upper reaches and seemingly remote, it is no isolated backwater. A network of hill-paths through the Mounth links Glenesk to Deeside and neighbouring Angus glens, while its lower end opens out to the low country of the east. This is one reason why the Glen is so rich in the relics of the life and work of the people who have lived there and who have passed through it from early times onwards. This is the story of an upland, rural community, told, as often as possible, from the perspectives of the people themselves. Covering almost every aspect of glen life, the book may aptly be described as an histoire totale. From the distant past to the present day, Glenesk: The History and Culture of an Angus Community looks at people's changing relationships with the landscape, the buildings in which they lived, worked and worshipped and the tools they used. Official documents record the effects of the famine and wars of the seventeenth century, and the deprivations suffered either at the hands of marauding Highland caterans or the renegade offspring of their landlords. The text is richly complemented by many original, period photographs which portray the everyday life of the Glen. The book is the inspiration of Margaret Fairweather Michie, the local-born teacher and historian who founded the Glenesk Museum. Her love of the Glen, its people and history continue to inspire."--BOOK JACKET
