Scotland was an active – albeit junior – partner in the British Empire. This created a long-lasting, complex, and eloquent debate among Scottish novelists about the nature of Scotland’s involvement in the power-structures of British society. Some Scottish writers, such as Sir Walter Scott and John Buchan, did much to generate and promote Imperial Britain’s sense of itself, and these authors tended to be part of the Scottish elite.

In the early 1980s Ranajit Guha made what has proved to be a fruitful and influential distinction between what he called the 'elite' and what he called the 'subaltern classes'.

Douglas Mack argues that such writers actively challenge the elite's Imperial Grand Narrative and demonstrates that Scottish fiction .

Exposes a radical, anti-establishment tradition of Scottish fiction that begins with Hogg and is carried on by writers such as Gibbon, Kelman and Welsh.

The extraordinary influence of Scots in the British Empire has long been recognized. Moreover, the relationship between Scots and the British Empire had a profound effect upon many aspects of Scottish society. As administrators, settlers, temporary residents, professionals, plantation owners, and as military personnel, they were strikingly prominent in North America, the Caribbean, Australasia, South Africa, India, and colonies in South-East Asia and Africa. Throughout these regions they brought to bear distinctive Scottish experience as well as particular educational, economic, cultural, and religious influences.
