Chapter 1 examines the Scottish political context, with particular reference to the apparent trend towards conformity with British political responses. Chapter 2 considers enthusiasm for Fascist solutions in debate on domestic policy during the period 1933-34. Some early pro-German enthusiasts are considered in Chapter 3. Chapter 4 examines the various component parts of pro-Italian and anti-sanctions opinion during the Abyssinian Crisis, 1935-36. The emergence of Germany as a major focus of popular debate and the wave of pro-German comment attending the Rhineland Crisis are considered in Chapter 5. Chapter 6 deals with attitudes to Germany in 1936, when the expression of pro-German opinion in Scotland entered its most popular phase, while Chapter 7 examines one manifestation of enthusiasm during this period, the Anglo-German Fellowship. Enthusiasm for Nationalist Spain in Scotland, and the activities of the two principal vehicles for pro-Nationalist expression, the Friends of National Spain and the United Christian Front, form the subject of Chapter 8. Pro-German attitudes against a background of deteriorating Anglo-German relations in 1937 are considered in Chapter 9. Chapter 10 explores one particular topic in discussion on Anglo-German affairs which attained prominence during 1937, namely the Colonial Question. The main foreign policy debates of 1938, a year which was dominated by attitudes to appeasement, are considered in Chapter 11. The emergence of new and, in the main, more extreme forms of pro-German enthusiasm during 1938-39, and the isolation of the extremists in 1939 are examined in Chapters 12 and 13. A summary of the main points to emerge from this study is offered in the conclusion.
