The Battle for Scotland

by Andrew Marr - £9.99  Penguin Books Ltd (2013)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780241967935 | ISBN 10: 0241967937

Scots have tried unfamiliar political tactics as they struggle with the dilemma of being a minority inside a centralised state and their experience is now being studied by opposition leaders in England. Yet for many Scots, their own political history is a dim mystery; and outside Scotland, it is almost unknown.
Here, Andrew Marr provides the only modern account of the distinctive story of Scottish politics, from the collapse of Liberalism and the rise of radical Labour, to more recent Tory agonies and the complexities of contemporary Nationalism. He uses party and individual records, pamphlets, learned works, interviews and literature to tell a colourful and surprising tale which zig-zags from the Victorian world to today's arguments about the future of the nation state.
