Culture, Nation, and the New Scottish Parliament asserts that while Scotland's new Parliament (1999) is a creation of laws, politics, and economics, some of the forces underpinning it are cultural, therefore constantly alive and insistently creative. Scotland may not be confined by, but has always lived within and moved forward and outward, through its signs and stories. In the moment of the new Parliament, it is time to cast up Scotland's accounts of past and present, and to review the nation's futures. Readers will find the usual signs of Scotland foregrounded, questioned, and re-energized as contributors trace the dynamic toward a Scottish Parliament. And they will find new signs, whether sounds, sights, or souvenirs come into play, revealing today's performance of a dynamic Scotland. Caroline McCracken-Flesher teaches the novel, the British eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, Scottish literature, and literary theory at the University of Wyoming.

For nearly three hundred years, from the late seventeenth to the middle twentieth century, stoneware was a major part of British ceramic output. This book concentrates on that particular area of ceramics, and covers the history and development of stoneware in all its many variations. Those variations range widely from brown salt-glazed tavern wares to such refined wares as jasper, Castleford ware and the later art wares, to name a few. A specific aspect of the book is to give anyone interested in ceramics, and collectors in particular, very comprehensive information on the manufacture of the different types of stoneware, from the preparation of the clay, or body, through the forming, decorating and glazing techniques to the firing. Such is likely to provide a greater appreciation and understanding of stoneware in its many variations.There are separate chapters on the later art wares and their makers, bottle wares, and marks and identification, as well as an appendix listing manufacturers, a comprehensive glossary and a list of museums. The illustrations cover a wide range of types. Many books on ceramics include information on stoneware, but this in-depth book benefits from the experience of a writer who is both a collector and ex-potter.
