Empire and Civil Society in 20th Century Scotland: Imperial Decline and National Identity, 1918 - 1970

The "Empire and Civil Society in 20th Century Scotland: Imperial Decline and National Identity, 1918-1970" was funded by the Economic and Social Research Council, and provides access to the contemporary views of key sectors of Scottish society on Scotland's imperial role and its displacement as a dominant representation of national identity between 1918 and 1970. The dataset provides access to 26 oral history interviews that were conducted with 28 participants, broadly belonging to two groups: former missionaries and others who were connected to the Church of Scotland, and activists in labour movement organisations, non-government organisations, and race equality organisations.
