Product Overview

The Scottish parliamentary and local elections of 2007 were significant for two key reasons: the SNP was brought to power for the first time in history, posing a fundamental challenge to the three-hundred-year Scottish-English Union; and the local elections made use of the Single Transferable Vote--the first time such an electoral system had been used in Great Britain since 1945. This book explores the significance of these two developments, asking whether they heralded a revolutionary break with the past or simply marked a continuing process of evolving patterns in Scottish politics. The authors use a unique source of evidence--representative high quality annual sample surveys of the Scottish public that, since 1999, have regularly measured the Scottish reaction to devolution and their behabior in elections. Readers gain unparalleled insight into the identities, attitudes, and electoral behavior of the Scottish during the first decade of devolution.
