As revealed by the 1992 General Election, the Scottish question is unlikely to go away - whether it is a clamour for devolution or independence. This book will answer a number of questions - could Scotland survive economically without England? Where does the fervour for Scottish Home Rule come from? What would a Scottish parliament mean for the average Scot? The book includes sections entitled the political nation, the working country, the fiery cross, the dream of brotherhood, John Buchan's children and an assessment of the election.
