About this product
- DescriptionThe book draws on original academic research to discuss the outcome of the 1997 general election in Scotland, and the overwhelming endorsement of a Scottish parliament in the referendum of September 1997. It offers the most rigorous and up-to-date assessment of Scottish electoral politics that is available, setting the 1997 Scottish result in a comparative context with the rest of Britain, and in a context of changing political attitudes and behaviour since the 1970s. The 1997 general election ranks - along with 1945 and 1979 - as a turning-point in the post-war UK. For Scotland, the most important outcome of the election is likely to be the setting up of a Scottish parliament. The book uses survey evidence to attempt to understand the results of the general election and the referendum in Scotland, and assesses the relationship between national identity and the policy agenda as Scotland moves towards a new constitutional future.
