In every sphere, including science, medicine, industry, art, commerce, sport, music, politics, and social reform, Dundee has played a role.

Among the figures uncovered in the work are Preston Watson, the Scottish aviation pioneer- Thomas Maclagan, the Dundee doctor who discovered aspirin- James Chalmers, the inventor of the adhesive postage stamp- and James Bowman Lindsay, the pioneer of electric light. But between the stories of cutting-edge medicine and avant-garde art, the authors have not forgotten enlightening and humorous stories about the citys maverick characters and irreverent aspects of Dundee life, both past and present.
