Anatomy of the new Scotland

G. Hassan, C. Warhurst

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

Contemporary Scotland is undergoing a radical transformation economically, socially and politically. New elites, institutions and players are emerging, while old power groups are faced with the challenge of holding onto their previously unquestioned power. Looking across the spectrum of Scottish life and society, this text asks who runs Scotland, who are the key players and elites and who are the crucial insiders and outsiders, and offers a penetrating map of how decisions are made in Scotland. This collection offers a comprehensive analysis of contemporary Scotland, highlighting who holds power, influence and status. It covers the Scottish economy, the public sector, political institutions, the media and culture. It brings together an analysis of traditional areas of Scottish society such as finance, industry and the business lobby, while offering an examination of newer issues reflecting the diversity and changing nature of Scotland: new entrepreneurs, changing gender relations, gay Scotland and the Asian establishment. It brings together in over 30 essays that offer an accessible but definitive analysis of Scotland at a crucial point in its history.
