He has subsequently transferred his allegiance to the independence movement, and the book begins with a very pertinent and difficult question. We are surely owed an explanation.

There is something about Glasgow which resists chronology: it is a city of endless reinvention. It is also a city with a certain degree of schizophrenia, which Fry shows with elegance. It is at once the Burrell Collection and Taggart. I remember being told, as a child — as a Borderer I have no dog in the fight between the East and West — that if only the jovial but fighty people of Glasgow could have the architecture of Edinburgh and vice versa, the world would be a better place. The first two chapters are very good indeed, showing how the nexus of commerce shaped what Glasgow would become.

Fry is excellent on, for example, the failure of the Scottish car industry, and the impacts that would have on subsidiary but essential manufacturing — from steel to textiles. It is, and I here declare an interest — a slight disappointment that the Singer factory gets no mention.
