Description - The Strange Death of Labour Scotland by Gerry Hassan

This book analyses the last 30 years of Scottish Labour, from the arrival of Thatcherism in 1979 right up to the SNP gaining a majority in the Scottish Parliament in 2011. Drawing on extensive research, the book addresses a range of themes including the policy and programme of Labour in office at Holyrood (focusing on the key policy areas of education and healthcare), and on the internal politics, organisation and electoral strategy of the party.
