Synopses & Reviews
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.
