dc.description.abstractThis ethnographic monograph, based upon research carried out during 1999 when the Scottish parliament was re-convened, outlines the structural and cultural logic of working class nationalism in Scotland today and grounds this reality, in particular among a younger generation, in the postindustrial village of Cardenden in central Fife. The central argument is that a politics of nationality is being driven by class realities and which frames the desire to have Nation and State congruent without recourse to metaphors of 'blood and soil' and is indifferent to appeals to civic nationalism or civil society. As an ethnography of class this research ethnographically grounds the general idea of working class structuration and class habitus developed by the late Pierre Bourdieu by specifying an original conception of the Scottish working class habitus - specifically, the "worked self." The chapters deal specifically with the crisis in the reproduction of locality, housing conditions, anti-social behaviour and eviction; ethnographically details a British and unionist identity among an older generation of locals and ethnographically and analytically details the embodied nature of work and personhood.en
