On-Line Book Launch of Ben Jackson’s The Case for Scottish Independence: A History of Nationalist Political Thought in Modern Scotland

Speakers: Ben Jackson (Oxford University); Scott Hames (Stirling University); Naomi Lloyd-Jones (Oxford University); Rory Scothorne (Edinburgh University), chaired by Lise Butler (City University)

5pm-6.30pm, Thursday 15 October 2020


Ben Jackson’s new book will be officially launched at this special online event, featuring three speakers in conversation with the author about the book and the wider issues it raises about the history and politics of Scotland and the UK.

Ben Jackson's accessible and engaging account of the political thought of Scottish nationalism explores how the arguments for Scottish independence were crafted over some fifty years by intellectuals, politicians and activists, and why these ideas had such a seismic impact on Scottish and British politics in the 2014 independence referendum.

This event will be delivered via Zoom.
