Scottish devolution and national identity
Abstract:In opening this special edition of National Identities we will introduce the papers herein, which take Scottish devolution as their starting point for reflecting on Scottish national identity. Before so doing, we contextualize these analyses by giving a background to devolution and to studies of Scottish national identity in general. We lay out some of the approaches taken thus far and, in particular, raise points for further debate, which authors in this issue will take further.
