Abstract

The first study of Scottish devolution to adopt an explicitly comparative approach and the first to analyse the impact of the European dimension Sheds light on one of the most contested questions in contemporary politics: whether European integration leads to fragmentation of its constituent states Builds a ground-breaking argument that challenges the widespread thesis that support for devolution was a consequence of the 'democratic deficit' created by eighteen years of Conservative rule Identifies three key factors in the changing politics of Scottish devolution: the interaction between attitudes to devolution and attitudes to independence, the exploitation of the European context to shape perceptions An entirely original explanation of Scottish devolution
