Synopsis

The inside story of the campaign that rocked the United Kingdom to its foundations, and the implications of the Scottish independence movement for the future of British politics.

Alex Salmond has been a passionate supporter of Scottish independence his whole life. In September 2014, he came close to realising that dream.

In a riveting daily diary, written with his trademark wit and charm, Salmond takes us into the heart of the YES campaign, revealing what was said and done behind the scenes as the referendum reached its dramatic climax.

He explains how the YES campaign energised the entire Scottish nation and rewrote the rulebook for grassroots political campaigning, not just in the UK but throughout the world.

He also looks ahead to the critical role of the ‘national question’ in the future of British politics, making clear that the referendum was not the end of a process, but the beginning of one.

The dream of Scottish independence is very much alive.

External Reviews

'A riveting account of the campaign that rocked the Westminster establishment and changed Scotland for ever. A must-read book for all of us who believe that Scotland should have equal rights with all other nations' - Sean Connery.

"The book is a fascinating insight into the day to day activities of the FM in the run up to the independence referendum, no doubt my interest was piqued since I could directly relate what I was reading with what I could remember. What was happening behind the scenes was particularly interesting, especially the conversations Salmond had with various individuals, both low and high profile, and from both YES and NO camps. Although, as you might expect conversations with avowed NO'ers were limited! Well worth a read if you took an active interest in the referendum. Brought a lot of it back for me, painful as that was." - Goodreads Review.
