Foreword by James Dunbar- Naismith. Introduction by Lester Borley. A bibliography of Maurice Lindsay, list of contributors and index."Dear Maurice" is a collection of essays about culture and identity in Scotland, prepared in honour of the 80th birthday of Maurice Lindsay (21 July 1998). Its content reflects the life and times of Scotland in the last half of the 20th century, and serves as an indispensable guide to the changing context of literature, broadcasting, journalism, Scottish studies, the arts and environmental politics and the growing strength of the conservation movement. The essays have been contributed by leading authorities in each field of activity in which Maurice Lindsay has been active in the past half-century. His abilities as a poet, writer, critic, communicator and animator of public opinion are reflected throughout this tribute, coinciding with Scotland's move towards Devolution and the Millennium, which justifies such reflection on Scotland's culture and identity within Europe. S9.
