Iain MacWhirter - Road To Referendum (2nd Hand Hardback)
A truly important book. It offers a huge sweep of history and deals with recent Scottish politics in formidable, but never tedious detail.
On the 18th September 2014, Scotland decided the future of the United Kingdom. This is the story of how we got here - and where we might go yet.
The referendum on Scottish independence was a landmark in the history of the United Kingdom, potentially ending the 300 year old union between the countries within Britain.
And it has raised so many questions - Why have Scots seemingly fallen out of love with the union? Why have the SNP risen to unprecedented heights? And what does the future hold for both countries, north and south of the border?
Road to Referendum takes us on a journey through the history of the UK and shows us where the road may lead us with unparalleled insight.
