Political Scotland
in Scotland
Abstract only
Log-in for full text

This chapter, contributed by the late Duncan McTavish, does not provide a detailed account of the Scottish political system, as there are other texts that do that in a more focused manner. But it illustrates and reflects on the way in which Scottish political culture has changed since devolution. It discusses the institutional, governmental and partisan structure of modern Scotland; the ‘movers and shakers’ within Scottish politics and the ways in which Scottish politics has diverged from politics elsewhere in the UK – particularly in relation to voting behaviour and key policy areas.
