9780714655918: Scottish Nationalism and the Idea of Europe: Concepts of Europe and the Nation (British Politics and Society)

'Independence in Europe', adopted by the Scottish National Party (SNP) as its core policy in 1988, has become part and parcel of contemporary Scottish nationalism. But is this not a contradiction in terms? Nationalistic logic dictates that one cannot demand independence while accepting the constraints that come with membership of the European Union. This book takes up that question and explores the conditions that have emerged and become integrated with Scottish society today.

Scottish Nationalism and the Idea of Europe offers fresh insights into the 'pro-European' dimension of Scottish nationalism and its implications for the UK. The book also argues for the necessity of examining the uses of history in seeking to understand the 'new' nationalisms of contemporary Europe.

Review:

'A well-constructed, readable and very clear account of the attitudes of Scottish elites towards Europe and the way in which these elites project images of europe and the european Union onto Scottish identity.'

Peter Lynch, Scottish Affairs

'Interview material is skilfully deployed in the main empirical sections and backed up by some widder statistical data to assess changing public attitudes to Europe.'

Peter Lynch, Scottish Affairs
