The United Kingdom :
Northern Ireland, Scotland, and Wales /
edited by Jeff Wallenfeldt.
Presents information about the history, geography, ethnic groups, economy, government, religion, and culture of Northern Ireland, Scotland, and Wales. This book storied lands that have sparked the global imagination through their legends and centuries-old traditionsoften seem to be eclipsed by the neighboring England. While there are many similarities between them, each is culturally distinct, with languages, traditions, and identities not shared by the others. But even as Northern Ireland, Scotland, and Wales each work to safeguard their unique heritages, they have also worked together and with England, despite the often tense relationships between them that have at times made coexistence difficult and independence movements frequent. The histories, peoples, and traditions of these remarkable lands are the subjects of this book.
