As leader of the Scottish National Party (on and off) for almost a quarter of a century, Alex Salmond has dominated Scottish, and also UK, politics for much of the last decade, while in 2014 he brought Scotland to the brink of independence.
In this new edition of his acclaimed biography, David Torrance charts the life and career of Alex Salmond, including his time as leader of two SNP administrations, the 2014 referendum, his subsequent resignation as party leader and Westminster comeback at the 2015 general election.
With reference to a vast range of published and documentary material, as well as interviews with many of his colleagues, friends and politicians from across the political spectrum, this is an insightful portrait of both Salmond the man and Salmond the politician.
