Understanding Scotland : The Sociology of a Nation, Paperback Book

Understanding Scotland : The Sociology of a Nation Paperback


Understanding Scotland has been recognised since publication as the key text on the sociology of Scotland.

This wholly revised edition provides the first sustained study of post-devolution Scottish society.

It contains new material on:* the establishment of the Scottish parliament in 1999* social and political data from the 1997 general elections* the new cultural iconography of Scotland* Scotland as a European society. For anyone wishing to understand Scottish society in particular or the general issues involved in nation building, McCrone's clear-headed coherently argued account of the main issues will be essential reading.
