29 SEP 11Times Educational Supplement ScotlandCrème de la Crème and Ties that Bind
Alasdair Roberts' books, Crème de la Crème and Ties that Bind, were the subject of an article by Raymond Ross in TESS.

'These books form an intriguing social history of Edinburgh, and their attraction for many will probably lie in the colourful details ... But their virtue lies elsewhere: in putting Edinburgh's unique tradition of fee-paying education in a social and historical context, thus inviting an informed and open debate.

That may be a matter of ignorance, political disdain or inverted snobbery, but it is just plain daft. Recession or no recession, these schools are not going to wither away, and most certainly not in the city of Miss Jean Brodie.'
