In his new book, Scotland Rising, academic and political commentator Gerry Hassan envisages a fresh argument for political autonomy, moving the debate on from the stale positions of the past. In this conversation he’ll address fundamental questions about this contentious debate, to help us better understand the nuances of the case for independence and its implications for the whole UK, including examining the constitutional framework, and examining questions about the role of government and democracy, the nature of the British state, society, and capitalism.
