Description - The Road to Home Rule by Christopher Harvie

When the Scottish Parliament sat in Edinburgh for the first time in nearly 300 years it was the climax of Europe's most peaceable and legalistic national movement. The struggle for self-government in a country both industrial and underdeveloped may have been the work of the foxes rather than the lions, but they got there by many ingenious routes. This volume documents the demonstrations and protests, the journalism and poetry, the party politics and international upheavals which swept the Scottish cause along - and all too frequently adrift - in the 20th century. There is a core essay by historian Christopher Harvie and the political correspondent, Peter Jones.
