Blossom: What Scotland Needs to Flourish (Viewpoin&hellip by Lesley Riddoch
10 of 11 people found the following review helpful
Scottish Independence is frought with so many daunting concerns. Riddoch's book offered a view of the intimate social fabric of Scottish society that more technical writings on economics and government decision making leave out.
She lets us understand the needs of those on the margins - those living in Council Estates who have been neglected in much of the larger debates. She tells us that the only thing keeping the Scottish people from realizing a rich vital future for Scotland is the people themselves disbelieving in their own potential.
