Books

A couple of post-referendum, pro-independence purchases for my wee Kindle this week…

I haven’t read either of these books yet but they look good, the authors are both made of awesome and they are sure to make fine and inspirational reading in the run-up to the UK general election in May…

Luath Press (19 Dec. 2014)

“Wee White Blossom is a post-indyref, poppadom-sized version of Blossom for folk who’ve already sampled the full bhuna. It updates Blossom with a new chapter on Scotland’s Year of Living Dangerously. Lesley Riddoch shares her thoughts on the Smith Commission, the departure of Gordon Brown, the return of Alex Salmond and the latest developments in land reform and local control. She considers the future of the SNP, the Radical Independence Campaign, Common Weal, Women for Independence and Scottish Labour in the aftermath of the referendum. This is a plain-speaking, incisive call to restore equality and control to local communities and let Scotland flourish”

Cargo Publishing (8 Dec. 2014)

“Following on from the highly acclaimed Road To referendum, this is the story of the referendum and the journey beyond, from one of the UK’s most insightful political writers. On the 18th September Scotland voted to stay in the Union. In this provocative new book, Iain Macwhirter argues that the UK will never be the same again. Disunited Kingdom explores Scotland’s political and cultural landscape in the immediate build up to, and aftermath of, the referendum. Combining expert and personal insight, Macwhirter deftly examines the future of Scotland, the UK, and the enduring passion for independence”
