Back cover text:

Scots have made a huge contribution to the world – you only have to look at a tea towel listing the famous sons and daughters of the saltire to see that. However, surprisingly, there is much that has taken place without its influence. This books seeks to show what could have happened if history was Scottish.

The famous figures and major events that have made an impact throughout the history of the world are seen through a uniquely comedic Caledonian perspective. The whole clanjamfrie of attributes associated with being Scottish – pawky, canny, contrary, gallus, aggressive, idealistic and maudlin – are used to revisit the battles, assassinations, explorations and inventions across the continents and centuries.

Some of those appearing are: JFK, MLK, Marie Antoinette, Neil Armstrong, Jesus, Lenin, The Beatles, Attila the Hun, Julius Caesar, Scott of the Antarctic, Rasputin, Albert Einstein, Queen Victoria, Hitler and Typhoid Mary.

Welcome to an alternative world, where all history is Scottish.
