Scottish Politics in the Twentieth Century by Iain G. C. Hutchison

Scottish Politics in the Twentieth Century

Part of the British History in Perspective Series


Scottish Politics in the Twentieth Century by Iain G. C. Hutchison

The book examines and seeks to explain the extent to which politics in Scotland in the twentieth century has both deviated from and conformed to the overall British pattern. Attention is devoted to the impact of differences from the rest of Britain in Scottish social and economic structures, as well as distinctive ideological and historical influences, in shaping the particular course of political development in Scotland. Original research enlivens Hutchison's masterly synthesis of current work in the field.


'In this relatively brief work, Hutchinson meticulously examines and analyzes the electoral fortunes of the political parties in Scotland.' - British Politics Group Newsletter 'An academic text of this kind is long overdue. It will be invaluable for teaching ...The book is thorough, wide-ranging and balanced.' - Dr Irene Maver, Deptartment of Scottish History, University of Glasgow'
