Independence : An Argument for Home Rule, Paperback

Independence : An Argument for Home Rule Paperback



Gray argues that a truly independent Scotland will only ever exist when people in every home, school, croft, farm, workshop, factory, island, glen, town and city feel that they too are at the centre of the world.

Independence asks whether widespread social welfare is more possible in small nations such as Norway and New Zealand than in big ones like Britain and the U.S.A.

It describes the many differences between Scotland and England.

It examines the people who choose to live north of the border.

It shows Scotland's relevance to the rest of the world.

It attempts to conjure a vision of how a Scots parliament might benefit the people of this small but dynamic nation. And it tells how democracy will only truly succeed when every person believes that their vote will make a difference.
