  • Description

Although the referendum was fought by two umbrella campaign groups - Yes Scotland and Better Together - political parties remained central to the campaign and shaped the nature of the referendum in the Scottish Parliament.

 

This book analyses the referendum roles and activities of the political parties  during the campaign, places the independence referendum in international context through examining other sovereignty referendums and looks at the emergence of new political organisations like Radical Independence and National Collective.
