Back cover text:

Scotland is one country with many systems and part of many Unions - the UK, Europe and global. What is our role and our future? How ambitious are we? Has the SNP victory in 2007 changed forever the mindset of Scottish politics or have we been here before? Is the 300-year-old Union in danger? What is the state of Scottish politics today? Is it the end of traditional loyalties? Is a seismic shift in public opinion underway? How will the Scottish landscape look in the future."Scotland: The Road Divides" is a hard-hitting, incisive, and informed look at where the devolution journey has taken us - from the heady days of the new Blair government in 1997 to the dramatic events of 2007 - and where do we go from here. Arguing that the Union must adapt to survive, McLeish and Brown contend that the devolution referendum paved the way for a bold new consitutional settlement. A contentious and pertinent commentary, this book maintains that many politicians have not come to terms with the dramatic changes and do not appear to understand the 'new politics'.
