On Glasgow and Edinburgh

Ư Beginning reader On Glasgow and Edinburgh kindergarten ჰ Book By Robert Crawford ᄱ Edinburgh and Glasgow enjoy a famously scratchy relationship Resembling other intercity rivalries throughout the world, from Madrid and Barcelona, to Moscow and St Petersburg, to Beijing and Shanghai, Scotland s sparring metropolises just happen to be much smaller and closer together like twin stars orbiting a common axis Yet their size belies their world historical importance as cultural and commercial capitals of the British Empire, and the mere forty miles between their city centers does not diminish their stubbornly individual nature.Robert Crawford dares to bring both cities to life between the covers of one book His story of the fluctuating fortunes of each city is animated by the one upping that has been entrenched since the eighteenth century, when Edinburgh lost parliamentary sovereignty and took on its proud wistfulness, while Glasgow came into its industrial promise and defiance Using landmarks and individuals as gateways to their character and past, this tale of two cities mixes novelty and familiarity just as Scotland s capital and its largest city do Crawford gives us Adam Smith and Walter Scott, the Scottish Enlightenment and the School of Art, but also tiny apartments, a poetry library, Spanish Civil War volunteers, and the nineteenth century entrepreneur Maria Theresa Short We see Glasgow s best known street through the eyes of a Victorian child, and Edinburgh University as it appeared to Charles Darwin.Crawford s lively account, drawing on a wealth of historical and literary sources, affirms what people from Glasgow and Edinburgh have long doubted that it is possible to love both cities at the same time.
