Back cover text:

We live in a time of crises in a state with no moral purpose. This generation could become great by tackling Scotland’s domestic problems, and the wider issues facing the world. That is only possible if we take charge, set the goal of equality and give ourselves twenty years to transform our society. We can lead ourselves to a better world. - ALEX BELL

Former Head of Policy to First Minister Alex Salmond, Alex Bell puts Scotland’s future in a global context and sets out a way for Scotland and the UK to reform. This is a manifesto for the future free of party lines or the usual orthodoxies – if you read only one book on the referendum, make it this one.

The sort of original thinking that has been so sorely missing in the debate. - BEN THOMSON, Reform Scotland

Badly needed as a guide for the general reader to the issues facing the Scottish people. - KENNETH ROY, Scottish Review

A rare work – a stimulating read that you would hope party manifestos would aspire to but rarely do. - JOHN McLAREN, Centre for Public Policy for Regions

A manifesto for the future. - ANDY WIGHTMAN, author of The Poor Had No Lawyers

… an eloquent and alarmingly persuasive book. - THE SCOTSMAN, on Peak Water
