Born Under a Union Flag: Rangers, the Union and Scottish Independence
18 July 2014 – 7 p.m.
Alan Bissett and Alasdair McKillop launch a new collection of writing, drawing from the worlds of football, politics, academia and literature.
Questioning how British and Scottish identities fit into supporting Rangers, Born Under the Union Flag provides the first solid exploration of the relationship between sport and national identity.
Well-known and informed contributors from both sides of the independence debate, including Harry Reid, Iain Duff, and Will McLeish, all lend their disparate viewpoints this book, showing just how nuanced – and difficult – the discussion really is.
A must-read for anyone interested in Rangers, the history of Scottish football, or the independence debate.
