Celtic Identity and the British Image
Pittock, Murray G. H.
ISBN: 0719058260
Manchester University Press Manchester, United Kingdom 2000 
8vo - over 7" - 9" tall Paperback 180pp looks unused. Celtic Identity and the British Image explores the idea of the Celt and definition of the so-called 'Celtic Fringe' over the last 300 years. It is the only in-depth study of the literary and cultural representation of Ireland, Scotland and Wales over this period, and is based on an extremely wide-ranging grasp of issues of national identity and state formation. The idea of the Celt and Celticism is once again highly fashionable. Is there such a thing as a common Celtic heritage? What is the place of the 'Celtic Fringe' in British identity? Pittock begins by assessing the term 'Celtic' itself, by questioning its validity, going on to examine its historic uses and heroic notions of Scotland's past. The Celtic Revival of the late nineteenth century is examined in detail, together with its impact on Irish nationalism. Pittock asks how far the 'Celtic' experience in Britain can be described as a colonial one, and examines the importance of the Celtic languages in preserving a sense of identity. Contemporary issues such as the literary language of the Troubles in Northern Ireland and the growth of modern Scottish nationalism are also considered. (publisher notes)  Fine

The Railroad and Silent Cinema
Kirby, Lynne
ISBN: 0859895300
Univ of Exeter Pr Exter 1997 
  344pp From its earliest days, the cinema has enjoyed a special kinship with the railroad, a mutual attraction based on similar ways of handling speed, visual perception, and the promise of a journey. PARALLEL TRACKS is the first book to explore and explain this relationship in both historical and theoretical terms, blending film scholarship with railroad history. This highly original work reveals the profound impact that the railroad and the cinema have had on Western society and modern urban industrial culture. It will be eagerly received by those involved in film studies, American studies, feminist theory and the cultural study of modernity. It will also have appeal to general readers interested in silent films or in the history of the railroad. Essential reading for students of early film history Also useful for students of cultural studies Includes discussion of many well-known silent films (publishers notes)
