Recommended reading

Having moved on from my literature review (finally!) and onto the first chapter of my Ph.D, I have a recommendation for those of you who have an interest in Scottish politics and devolution.

I'm currently reading The State of the Nations 2008 edited by Alan Trench, which provides an overview of devolved politics in the UK from 2007 until early 2008, recounting the challenges faced by respective governments in Scotland and Wales, their successes and failures and the every-growing turf-war between Westminster and the devolved legislatures. It's part of a series of books charting devolution from its first year (1999-2000) through several volumes (2001, 2003, 2004 and 2005) to the most updated volume.

It's well worth a look.

I'm quite happy - indeed, eager - to engage in debate with others when the topic provides opportunity to do so. I like knowing who I'm debating with and I'm fed up with some abusive anonymous comments so I've disabled those comments for awhile. If you want to comment, log in - it only takes a minute.
