What is Generation Scot Y? Born in the 1980s and 1990s and comprising primarily of the children of the baby boomers, Generation Y is often perceived as being the generation that wants it all.

Think you know what makes Scotland’s 20-somethings tick? Knowing who Generation Y in Scotland – Generation ScotY – is, matters for our economy, our society and our political culture.

Generation Scot Y has grown up with devolution: are they ready to embrace full nationhood? How has Scotland’s independence referendum affected them and what does it mean for their future?

In this book, political blogger at Burdz Eye View, Kate Higgins explores all this and more – Generation Scot Y’s identity, influences, values, voting behaviours and aspirations. Far from being frivolous, this is a serious generation for serious times.

This book only skims the surface but dip in and you’ll discover something you never knew – I did and I’m the mother of one. And ultimately, you’ll find that far from wanting to have it all, they just want a little of all that we’ve had.
