Format: Paperback
What? No other reviews of Kenyon's book on the run-up to the new Scottish Parliament? I recall one of the key events when the various parties gathered to launch a key part of the process in the Assembly Hall (sorry, this is a from-the-hip review, and don't recall the precise event). They were all there - Donald Dewar and the lot except the SNP who were not at that time participating, but when Kenyon came in in his kilt the entire hall rose and applauded. I thought: "here is the person who's undergirding Scotland's constitutional transformation" - deeper than the level of politics because, as he once told me, "I learned my liberation theology while in India". It's years since I read this book so I can't offer a proper review now - I only checked it out to recommend to a friend involved closely in the 2014 Referendum, but Kenyon's wisdom will remain relevant for a long time. Just a snippet from p. 14 about an earlier Assembly Hall event:

"I had a strange sense that I was surrounded, not just by the many hundreds present in the Assembly Hall, but by a 'cloud of witnesses' from the past. On the one side I felt the guardian presence of those Scots who in the 1320 Declaration, so far in advance of its time, told the King at Arbroath that he ruled 'subject to the consent of the realm,' and who pledged their lives 'not for honour, glory or riches but for freedom alone.' .... To my other side I felt the presence of ghosts from my own past, those who had helped me in my pilgrimage an brought me to this time and to the convictions which I hold dear."

Kenyon now lives in England for family reasons but his mind remains very active on the independence question. This book records key strata of that history. His blog - google "Kenyon Wright blog" - shows how fresh and relevant his though continues to be.
