This is a fascinating, up to date, and well-researched explanation of Scottish politics covering the last 150 years. Sutherland concentrates on the decline of the Scottish Unionist Association following its takeover by the English Conservative Party in 1959-60. His educational analysis provides an insight into the changing political landscape. In contrast his assessment of the individuals involved gives a clear and detailed picture of events.
