Arguments for Self-Determination
Temporarily out of stock
Back cover text:
Scotland believes it is a radical, egalitarian, inclusive nation and that the establishment of the Scottish Parliament was going to give expression to this. Instead, we have witnessed a minimal, unattractive politics with little to choose between the main parties. This might be adequate in the good times, but no more. Radical Scotland: Arguments for Self-Determination explores how we can go beyon` the limited politics we have experienced and makes the case for shifting from self-government politically to self-determination as a society and a nation. It asks how do we shake up institutional Scotland? How do we shift power and give peopla voice?
The editors Gerry Hassan and Rosie Ilett have brought together in one volume some of the most original thinkers in our nation making the case for a very different politics and society. It includes conversations with leading global figures on some of the key issues facing the world which impact on Scotland. This book is a must read for all those interested in Scotland at a crucial time, for its future, the Parliament, and for those who want our politics and public policy to be more effective, imaginative and bold.
A refreshing assault on sloppy and unimaginative thinking, be it left or right, Unionist or Nationalist. David Torrance, Freelance Journalist and Biographer of Alex Salmond
