"Trainspotting: filled with graphic realism and wild comedy, the stage adaptation of Irvine Welsh's phenomenally successful novel skims in and out of blighted lives spinning raw tales of everyday addiction: two dossers are called up to interview for the same shite job neither wants; a gallus lassie, goaded by four failed-Oxbridge twats from the Uni, takes bloody revenge; a skag boy tries to kick it one last time. Gruesome, political, violent and funny - Trainspotting is not to be missed." "Headstate: Originally conceived as a 'pre-club night' rather than a long-running play, this theatre piece, developed in concert with the Boilerhouse Theatre Company, is both a snapshot of and a hard-edged investigation into uncomfortable contemporary truths. Mickey sells love; Tina has given it away; John denies it; and Martin Sykes, the butcher, will always use it for a scam. Headstate is a shocking and humorous look at modern Britain: where we are now and how we got here."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved

The Trainspotting lads are back...and in worse shape than ever. In the last gasp of youth, Simon "Sick Boy" Williamson is back in Edinburgh. He taps into one last great scam: directing and producing a porn film. To make it work, he needs bedfellows: the lovely Nikki Fuller-Smith, a student with ambition, ego, and troubles to rival his own; old pal Mark Renton; and a motley crew that includes the neighborhood's favorite ex-beverage salesman, "Juice" Terry. In the world of Porno, however, even the cons are conned. Sick Boy and Renton jockey for top dog. The out-of-jail and in-for-revenge Begbie is on the loose. But it's the hapless, drug-addled Spud who may be spreading the most trouble. Porno is a novel about the Trainspotting crew ten years further down the line: still scheming, still scamming, still fighting for the first-class seats as the train careens at high velocity with derailment looming around the next corner.

This book charts the course of Scottish Critical Theory since the 1960s. It provocatively argues that 'French' critical-theoretical ideas have developed in tandem with Scottish writing during this period. Its themes can be read as a breakdown in Scottish Enlightenment thinking after empire - precisely the process which permitted the rise of 'theory'.The book places within a wider theoretical context writers such as Muriel Spark, Edwin Morgan, Ian Hamilton Finlay, James Kelman, Alexander Trocchi, Janice Galloway, Alan Warner and Irvine Welsh, as well as more recent work by Alan Riach and Pat Kane, who can be seen to take the 'post-Enlightenment' narrative forward. In doing so, it draws on the work of the Scottish thinkers John Macmurray and R.D. Laing as well as the continental philosophers Gilles Deleuze and Paul Virilio.

Jim Francis has finally found the perfect life – and is now unrecognisable, even to himself. A successful painter and sculptor, he lives quietly with his wife, Melanie, and their two young daughters, in an affluent beach town in California. Some say he’s a fake and a con man, while others see him as a genuine visionary. But Francis has a very dark past, with another identity and a very different set of values. When he crosses the Atlantic to his native Scotland, for the funeral of a murdered son he barely knew, his old Edinburgh community expects him to take bloody revenge. But as he confronts his previous life, all those friends and enemies – and, most alarmingly, his former self – Francis seems to have other ideas. When Melanie discovers something gruesome in California, which indicates that her husband’s violent past might also be his psychotic present, things start to go very bad, very quickly. The Blade Artist is an elegant, electrifying novel – ultra violent but curiously redemptive – and it marks the return of one of modern fiction’s most infamous, terrifying characters, the incendiary Francis Begbie from Trainspotting.

Braveheart and Trainspotting, both set in Scotland, hit the big screen in 1995. The first was an American award-winning big-budget epic movie that featured an Australian as a Scottish National Hero and was filmed in Ireland. The latter, a Scottish production and the most successful British film of the year, was a comparatively low-budget production, completely financed by Channel four. Both share in common the fact that they reached a huge audience world-wide, which may have been highly influenced by the films’ depictions of Scotland 1. As the American cinema market is the most important for domestic films, the way in which Scotland is presented in Braveheart is consciously chosen to primarily please the expectation of the American audience in the first place but also the moviegoers of Europe and the rest of the world. Trainspotting was primarily aimed at a British audience although an international success was naturally hoped for. In this essay I will analyse the ways in which nationality in the two films is represented. First I will deal with Braveheart and examine the application of Tartanry images in the representation of Scotland. Consequently, I will argue that the depiction of the Scots is divided by class lines, with Robert the Bruce as a special case. In addition, I will evaluate the representation of the English as well as the Irish and the French nation. In the second part of the essay I will concentrate on Trainspotting and its debunking of the stereotypical Highland-iconography. An analysis of the use of local culture in the film is followed by a closer look at how the film undermines the discourse of Tartanry and the issue of national pride. 1 When asked in a survey to name one image which best sums up Scotland, 16% of people in Bangladesh chose Braveheart. Other main associations were kilts, whisky, bagpipes and highlands/mountains (cf. McLoone 2001: 187).
