The 1997 Scottish Referendum confirmed the wish of the people of Scotland for their first Parliament in almost 300 years. In A Diverse Assembly Lindsay Paterson draws together for the first time a collection of the key arguments for and against the reinstating of a Scottish Parliament. Gathered from newspapers, journals, books and speeches, the voices of the major players in the debate can be heard.
About the Author
This book strikes me as timely and well thought out. It's not just a useful but an essential book.
This is an excellent idea. The last thirty-odd years have been among the most significant in Scottish political history, and this book will fill asignificant gap in the literature. This book is likely to become the definitive work in the area.
