(p.155) Chapter Eight Newspapers and empire
Scotland, Empire and Decolonisation in the Twentieth Century

Bryan S. Glass

Manchester University Press

This chapter examines two major imperial events in Africa: the beginning of the violence that defined the Mau Mau rebellion (1952) and the Suez Crisis (1956). The coverage of these issues by the three Scottish national dailies, The Scotsman, The Glasgow Herald, and the Daily Record, are analyzed and compared. These three papers provided a remarkable amount of information to the Scottish newspaper-reading public on these topics. This extensive imperial coverage reveals that the Scots, whether they categorized themselves as proponents, opponents, or victims of empire, had an appetite for all things imperial well into the era of decolonization, which would last until the mid-1960s.
