This collection of short papers, designed to inform and stimulate political argument and debate about democracy in Scotland, was originally published by the National Institute of Adult Continuing Education in 2003. At the time of writing, all the contributors were members of staff or associates of the University of Edinburgh. Ten years on and now only one year away from the Referendum on Scottish independence, most of the ideas and arguments (if not all the facts and figures) presented here remain as relevant and pertinent as ever. The editors, have decided to release this digital version of the source book so that it can be made as widely available as possible as a unique resource for public education in Scotland today. Advice about how it can be used is provided at the beginning of the text.
