    Crime, Punishment and the Scots

    Jean BERTON – Bill FINDLAY (edit. director) – 2019

    How crime and punishment are defined and managed is central to our shared sense of humanity. And both accountability and fairness are at the heart of our concerns. Although the distinctiveness of the Scots’ relationship to crime and its punishment is well documented the aim of the present study is to analyse it as an aspect of Scottishness. In this modest contribution to research, political decisions, historical facts and cultural metaphors are reviewed from the archetypal character of Mary, Queen of Scots, to vibrant Tartan Noir, thanks to Laidlaw and his peers.
