Edinburgh: A Cultural History (Cities of the Imagination)

by

Edinburgh: A Cultural History (Cities of the Imagination) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Edinburgh is a city of drama and celebrations, high culture and Scottish heritage. Yet, as Donald Campbell reveals, there are many other dimensions to this fascinating meeting-place of Protestantism and bohemianism. Exploring the social and literary history of an ever-changing metropolis, he also looks at Edinburgh's lesser-known landmarks, ranging from its historic heart to the drug-ridden suburbs. An insider's view of a contradictory city, this book shows the many faces of Edinburgh past and present--from the Royal Mile to the port of Leith.

Synopsis:

Part of the Cities of the Imagination series, this is an in-depth cultural, historical, and literary guide by a lifelong native to Scotland's vibrant capital and home to one of the world's greatest arts festivals.
