The new, fresh who’s-who of the Scottish Enlightenment.
If you drive a car, have an operation, use a mobile phone or watch TV, wear a raincoat, have survived the flu, or discussed the upcoming independence referendum — you’ve benefitted from the work of an enlightened Scot. They brought you tyres & telephones, philosophy & poetry, literature & liberation, science, steamships, lighthouses and a Wealth of Nations.
Introduction by First Minister Alex Salmond • 48 Key Figures from the Scottish Enlightenment • Extensive Journalistic Archive Images • Web & Online Links • Fully Indexed • Over 28 deluxe color illustrations from the National Galleries of Scotland
