Scotland's Parliament by Brian Taylor

Book Description

Scottish politics has changed radically since the advent of the Scottish Parliament. New personalities, new problems, new laws. This book is a second, companion volume, building upon Brian Taylor's highly-rated book which tracked the road to devolution. That first book has been revised and reprinted as The Road to the Scottish Parliament. For this new book, Taylor has spoken - on and off the record - to all the key players in Scotland's developing political drama. He tells the inside story of Scotland's Parliament - the drama, the horse-trading and the gossip - as well as offering cool, dispassionate analysis. If you want to find out what really happened when Henry McLeish quit or when Alex Salmond opted for Westminster or when Scotland's Cabinet faced down the row over Section 28, then this is the book for you. Inside, you will find fresh insight, offering a new slant upon the rows and reconciliations of devolved politics. Frequently, the narrative is enlivened by entirely new detail and information. At the same time, there is comprehensive analysis of the issues such as identity which underlie devolution.Taylor charts the challenges which still confront the devolved settlement: money, Europe, relations with London. Based upon completely new interviews and research, this is a fresh look at the remarkable story of Scotland's reformed democracy.
