Scottish Invention of English Literature by Robert Crawford
Book DescriptionThe Scottish Invention of English Literature explores the origins of the teaching of English literature in the academy. It demonstrates how the subject began in eighteenth-century Scottish universities before being exported to America and other countries. The emergence of English as an institutionalised university subject was linked to the search for distinctive cultural identities throughout the English-speaking world. This book explores the role the discipline played in administering restraints on the expression of indigenous literary forms, and shows how the growing professionalisation of English as a subject offered a breeding ground for academics and writers with an interest in native identity and cultural nationalism. This book is a comprehensive account of the historical origins of the university subject of English literature and provides a wealth of new material on its particular Scottish provenance.

Book of Iona, Hardback (August 2016)
An anthology of fiction, non-fiction and poetry inspired by the isle of Iona.
On Glasgow and Edinburgh, Paperback (November 2015)
A mere forty miles apart, these cities have enjoyed a rivalry since wistful Edinburgh lost parliamentary sovereignty and defiant Glasgow came into its industrial promise. Crawford brings them to life between the covers of one book, in a tale that mixes novelty and familiarity, as Scotland s cultural capital and largest commercial city do."
Testament, Paperback (July 2014)» View all books by Robert Crawford
To make a testament is to attempt to pass on what matters most. This book opens with a sequence of love poems, and closes with 'Testament', a startlingly fresh gathering of deftly rhymed paraphrases based on the New Testament.
