James Kellas was the first academic authority to recognise that the ‘Scottish Political System’ was an entity in its own right worthy of study.   His understanding of the unique character of Scotland and its politics anticipates many of the questions and junctures Scotland now faces.  His work on nationalism extended those insights. Professor Kellas’ enthusiasm and generosity also helped shape a generation of politics students in Scotland.  Leading scholars in Scottish Politics as well as former colleagues and students reflect on his legacy.
