Product Description

Annals of the Holyrood Parish chronicles a Decade of Devolution in Scotland, from the 2003 ‘rainbow parliament’ to the eve of the independence referendum.

‘An account that captures the pre-referendum mood, enlightening the distortion that hindsight will cause many of us to have, and thus is a mostvaluable addition to the debate.’ Lindsay Paterson

On 18 September 2014, the Scots are to vote on their country’s future. ‘Should Scotland be an independent country’ is the question which will be put before them. Annals of the Holyrood Parish describes in ten chapters the ‘Decade of Devolution’ that has led up to this decisive moment, from the ‘rainbow parliament’ of 2003 which, a year later, moved into Enric Miralles’ new parliament building at Holyrood, to the absolute majority of the Scottish National Party, covering elections, parliamentary bills, the ups and downs of parties and politicians, and what the Scottish people and the Scottish media have made of it all. A fascinating chronicle unfolds which charts the devolution journey so far, throws light on both campaigns – for and against independence – and sets the scene for ‘Scotland’s date with destiny’.
