This is the second edition of Prof Chris Harvie's history of Scotland. It remains short, light, irreverent. It has now been taken in hand by editor Alice Lowenstein and made compatible with the material on country, people and culture now available online: as the first building-block in a project called ClanScotland: to edit your own 'Story of Scotland'. The result is a 'Tardis' of a book: not only telling Scotland's story in a sharp, witty way, helped by pictures - Scoular Anderson's cartoons - and conversations with princes, priests and poets, but showing where you can meet it face to face. Once inside, you can get information on websites or, if you have an i-phone, click on the QR code, access the online text, and get pictures of a castle, find when it opens, get a map and a timetable, find somewhere to eat. And there s enough space to scribble the info that you want.
