    Abstract

    This chapter examines changes in the composition of the ruling class of Scotland over the past two decades, showing how it has changed, but also how the dominant ways of thinking about it-particularly those whose primary focus has been with the national question-have maintained by either omission or commission that neoliberalism has somehow passed Scotland by.
