    Review quote
    "There is much to admire here. There is scholarship on every page. It will become the definitive reference work on the nationalist strand of Scottish politics and Scottish history - the early days in particular are extremely well done, with close attention to original sources - impressive and has never been so well set out before." Kenny Farquharson, Scottish Affairs [45], 2003 " - a core stock item" Politicos Bookshop
