New Scotland, New Society?: Are Social and Political Ties Fragmenting?
Are Social and Political Ties Fragmenting?
New Scotland, New Society asks a series of vital questions regarding the attitudes and behavior of the Scots: are the ties that bind people to each other and to the democratic system fragmenting? How do people relate to social institutions such as the family and systems of morality? Is constitutional reform restoring that trust? Drawing on the Scottish Social Attitudes Survey and its predecessors, the overall aim of the book is to provide an independent account of public opinion in post-devolution Scotland.
