Originally published in 1975, Andrew Hook's Scotland and America is now considered a classic by experts on Scottish and American thought and culture. It is relevant to a number of important topics that have gained increasing attention in the twenty-first century, including the Scottish Enlightenment and its impact; transatlantic studies, and studies of cultural representation and transmission generally; the history of print communication; and the problem of national identity in modern Scottish history. Scotland and America convincingly documents the range and depth of the Scottish imprint on American culture in its formative years. 'Scotland and America is a foundational book in transatlantic literary history. It remains essential reading today for anyone seeking to understand the complexity,extent and nature of Scotland's impact on America in the crucial first century of the new nation's move towards literary independence. Hook's scholarly research, broad sweep of argument and elegant readability make it always a delight to return to. Humming Earth must be congratulated for their enterprise in making this important text available once more.'

Susan Manning, Grierson Professor of English Literature,University of Edinburgh 'Andrew Hook's Scotland and America is a path-breaking book, which has opened up a whole new terrain of scholarly enquiry. Although the primary focus of the book is on literature, the range of erudition makes it essential reading for historians and others as well.'
