"The rise and spectacular growth of Nationalist movements in Scotland and Wales has transformed the British political scene. Professor Hanham's lively, sympathetic and very well informed account of Scottish Nationalism, as he points out, Scotland is a state within a state. With a national church, a distinctive legal system, the Scottish banks, a separate administration and a peculiarly Scottish system of local government, Scotland stands apart from England and has done so since the Union of 1707. The majority of Scots and Scottish M.P.s supported Home Rule for Scotland from 1892 down to the First World War and for some time afterwards; and when Home Rule did not come, a nationalist movement developed, which has had a continuous existence since 1918. And there have been three nationalist 'revivals' at the beginning of the 1930s, at the beginning of the 1950s, and since 1966. The first Scottish National Party M.P. was elected in 1945, the second in 1967." CONDITION Blue cloth with bright Gilt title (clean and unworn) 250 pages, bright and crisp with gift note to ffep.
