Scottish nationalism | Wikipedia audio article


Scottish nationalism promotes the idea that
the Scottish people form a cohesive nation and national identity and is closely linked
to the cause of Scottish home rule and Scottish independence, the ideology of the Scottish
National Party, the party forming the Scottish Government. It is often described as a form of civic nationalism
rather than ethnic nationalism.The Acts of Union merged the independent kingdoms of Scotland
and England into Great Britain in 1707, but a separate legal system and distinct Scottish
institutions continued to exist.Linguistic independence was an important part of the
twentieth-century Scottish Renaissance, associated with the nationalist impetus provided by Hugh
MacDiarmid.==See also==
