Review quote

This is an excellent idea. The last thirty-odd years have been among the most significant in Scottish political history, and this book will fill asignificant gap in the literature. This book is likely to become the definitive work in the area. -- David McCron This book strikes me as timely and well thought out. It's not just a useful but an essential book. -- Christopher Harvie, University of Tubingen This is an excellent idea.
