Over the last two decades, a major theme in historical studies of Scotland and its diaspora has been the relationship with Empire. Historians have argued that the Scots' contribution to the British Empire was disproportionate and that, in the spheres of education, engineering, exploration, medicine, commerce, and shipping, the Scots earned a reputation for empire building. Furthermore, Scotland was one of the first British nations to develop an imperial identity, an identity through which Scots were celebrated as the supreme component of the Empire. This thesis contributes an important Australian case study to the growing literature on Scotland and Empire by offering a broad social and cultural history of the Scots in Australia from the late eighteenth to the early twentieth centuries, situating this within the context of the British Empire. It addresses the question of Scotland's contributions to the Empire in Australia and the consequent rise of an imperial identity in the nineteenth century, and argues that the realities of a changing Scotland challenged and complicated ideas of Scottishness in Australia, most notably during the early decades of the twentieth century. Overall, this thesis offers an imperial context for the history of the Scots in Australia, and expands our understanding of their experience by considering the marginal voices of Scotland's diaspora.The themes and issues of Scotland's imperial relationship with Australia are examined using a variety of case studies that draw upon a range of primary materials and associated methodologies, including historical census data, oral history interviews, newspaper reports, immigration files, and historical government reports. These social and cultural explorations take in Scottish imperial contacts with Australia, the instruments of imperial endeavour in the new colonies, and Scottish imperial cultures in Australia. This thesis also complicates the imperial experience by investigating the political, social, and cultural diversity of Scotland's diaspora in Australia. Therefore, a variety of sources and a range of historical approaches are drawn upon to present the evidence in a novel and ultimately more illuminating manner.

'Something of a doubtful mist still hangs over these Highland traditions, nor can it be entirely dispelled by the most ingenious researches of modern criticism...' So wrote D.C.Stewart in the Preface to the first edition of The Setts of the Scottish Tartans published in 1950. His definitive work did much to remedy the situation, but subsequent further research made the need for a new book apparent. The author combines practical experience with a grasp of Highland social history in this book, which although aimed specifically at the amateur tartan-weaver, contains much of which will be of interest to students of either subject. The weaver is provided with precise hints on the special requirements of weaving tartan including threadcounts, accompanied by historical notes for 228 tartans, 142 of them illustrated in glowing colours which seem to reflect the lakes, sky, hills and valleys of Scotland. There are concise and informative articles on tartan pattern, colour, yarn, thread counts, yarn thicknesses and the actual weaving of the cloth. The basis of any tartan, as the author points out, is a simple two-colour check which may be varied by the addition of over-checks, bands and stripes in contrasting colours so arranged as to give a balanced and harmonious pattern.The author's interest in tartan brought him early into contact with the Scottish Tartans Society and with the late Donald C. Stewart with whom he collaborated over several years in a serious study of the subject, collaboration which resulted in the publication of a number of books, most recently his definitive work Tartan: The Highland Textile.His advice has been sought on the design of new tartans, notably the American Bicentennial, but his main interest is in the old ones. As one of the few specialist handweavers of tartan, he concentrated on making facsimiles and wove a reproduction of a pre-1745 plaid for the National Trust for Scotland's Centre at Culloden. In 1994 he handed his extensive archive, covering about one hundred years of serious tartan research, to the Highland Regional Archive for its preservation and for the benefit of future students.

Tartan is an enormously popular pattern in modern fashion. Beginning as Highland dress, it was originally peculiar to certain areas of Scotland, but is now generally accepted as its national costume: what was once ordinary working clothing of a distinctive local style has been formalised into a ceremonial dress, with tartans once woven according to the fancy of those who wore them becoming fixed with certain patterns prescribed for different families, areas or institutions. This process was not, as is popularly thought, a phenomenon begun by the romantic novels of Sir Walter Scott, but began long before as a reaction to the union with England in 1707. This book traces not only the early stages of that evolution, but the process by which the various tartans became icons of Scottish identity.
