CISS Pamphlets Series
Celtic Peoples | Tangata Kereti is a series of concise and vital interventions in the field of Irish and Scottish Studies, broadly conceived.
In each pamphlet, an eminent writer or thinker will explore an aspect of Irish and/or Scottish history or culture, sometimes with an eye to ramifications in Aotearoa New Zealand.
The pamphlets are published in limited editions by the Dalriada Press at Ōtepoti Dunedin. There will be ten pamphlets in the series.
We are delighted to inaugurate the series with Professor Val McDermid’s authoritative essay on the genesis and development of Scottish crime fiction.
