Scottish Home Rule

£12.99

The issue of Scottish home rule is not widely understood, being seen by many unionists as the slippery slope to independence and by independence supporters as a unionist proposal to retain sovereignty over Scotland. It is, however, a strong proposal in its own right with a separate history from independence and a more likely stepping-stone to federalism. This book is a much-needed statement for the merits of Scottish home rule as the best solution for Scotland. It covers the history and support for the home rule option from 1860s, a clear structure for what home rule is and how home rule could improve both Scotland as well be a framework for constitutional reform across the UK.
