Show Summary Details


Does the 2007 election indeed mark a revolutionary break in Scotland's links with the rest of the United Kingdom and in the importance of personality in local elections? Or does it simply mark an evolution in the country's politics? It brings together the threads of the analyses to consider in each case whether the revolutionary or the evolutionary perspective is the more appropriate, and to examine the apparent implications of the interpretation.
