The Oxford Handbook of Scottish Politics

Books & Articles
Michael Keating

The Oxford Handbook of Scottish Politics  published in the UK and Europe today by Oxford University Press, explores the issues, complexities and differing perspectives facing modern day Scotland. Scotland is the first nation that is not an independent state to have its own Oxford Handbook of Politics, demonstrating that Scottish politics has really come of age and there is an interest in Scottish politics beyond the borders of Scotland. The Oxford Handbook of Scottish Politics brings together leading academics in political science, sociology, history and beyond to inform the realities of politics in Scotland and where politics in Scotland is going. 

The book, edited by Michael Keating, examines: constitutional theory and practice; institutions and how public policy is made; parties, elections and voting behaviour. It covers gender, age and ethnicity, and the complexities of identity. Scotland is looked at in the UK, Europe and the World.
