Abstract

There is only one argument for Scottish independence: the cultural argument. It was there long before North Sea oil had been discovered, and it will be here long after the oil has run out. This book is an exploration of that cultural argument, considering economics, politics, languages, the union, education, democracy, and what the arts, pre-eminently painting and literature, are for.
