Abstract

In The Hero Building: An Architecture of Scottish National Identity, Johnny Rodger explores the role that commemorative monumental structures have played in Scotland as a mode of demonstrating national identity over the last two hundred years. This thought-provoking study will be invaluable for those looking to understand the idea of monumentality, both within and beyond a Scottish context, and will invite further examinations of the relationship between commemoration, identity and the urban, writes Kirsten Carter McKee.
