In what ways has Scotland developed since the creation of a devolved Scottish Parliament 20 years ago? The focus of this book, marking a highly significant landmark in the modern life of the nation, is not simply on the institutions of governance but on the agency of the people themselves in different areas of social, political, economic, environmental, cultural and secular/religious life. Bringing together the analysis and perspectives of public figures, established experts and newer commentators from a wide range of backgrounds, A People’s Scotland? looks both at past events and future possibilities. Asking probing questions about what really has or has not changed over the past two decades, the contributors to this volume provide a compelling, varied account the ‘state of the nation’ under an evolving devolution settlement. Here is a compact guide to the issues facing Scotland and its people as they look towards an uncertain future politically, constitutionally and in the context of major global upheavals.
