The Tears That Made the Clyde

Carol Craig

Carol Craig subjects Glasgow's post-industrial image of itself as 'Scotland with style' to a long-overdue and honest scrutiny. The city's motto rings out 'Let Glasgow Flourish' yet this book powerfully shows that many citizens languish as a result of mental ill health, illness, deprivation, worklessness, gangs, drink and family breakdown. The book's particular blend of history, politics, literature, sociology and psychology changes forever the way we see the city. Foreword by Professor Tom Devine and Afterword by Professor Phil Hanlon.

The Scotsí Crisis of Confidence

The Scotsí Crisis of Confidence book cover
Carol Craig

How do the Scots see the world?

Why do they often lack confidence in themselves or their country? And why do they often find it so easy to be negative and critical? These are some of the themes Carol Craig explores in The Scotsí Crisis of Confidence. This is a bold, intelligent and important book: it offers a refreshingly different analysis of the big themes in Scottish culture, defines for the first time what it really means to be Scottish and spells out the type of thinking now required if Scotland is to become a vibrant, confident country.
