Understanding National Identity

I found that I was having great difficulty talking to my father about Scottish History and Politics.  All conversations resulted in a massive increase in his blood pressure (he moved to Northern Ireland when he was one). Got my hands on the latest piece of work by David McCrone and Frank Bechhofer. Hope to read it over the coming days. Maybe it will enlighten me as to why the idea of identity and nationalism winds my Dad up so much.
