    Abstract

    As a case study of the relationship between arts and cultural policy and nationalism, this book examines the overlooked significance of Scotland in the development of British arts policy and institutions. Euan McArthur provides a clear account of the background to and evolution of the Council for the Encouragement of Music and the Arts (CEMA) and the Arts Council of Great Britain (ACGB) in Scotland up to the formation of the Scottish Arts Council (SAC) in 1967. Based on extensive archival research, this book brings to light previously unavailable material, not covered in existing accounts of CEMA/ACGB.
