5.0 out of 5 stars Best book on the independence debate so far
Very clear and informative worth a read whether you are for or against independence. Wish the no campaign would give us something worth reading

3.0 out of 5 stars surprisingly sensible if extreme socialist manifesto for an independent scotland
Imaginative and only slightly crazy but increases my respect for this very principled far too isolated politician. He is needed in the mainstream: give him a call Alex!

This review is from: In Place of Fear II: A Socialist Programme for an Independent Scotland (Paperback)
A timely and inspiring set of proposals for a radical new Scotland. This is a short read but an uplifting one that hints at some of the great possibilities a Yes vote can bring if Scots have the courage to take responsibility for their own destiny.

3.0 out of 5 stars ok stuff but getting tired, 30 Mar. 2014

This review is from: In Place of Fear II: A Socialist Programme for an Independent Scotland (Paperback)
Jim is an old school Scottish Socialist. Nothing wrong with that but he has adapted his long held views to the current referendum debate -and it doesn't work as the 'new' issues like EU membership and the currency debate require a greater and deeper political analysis than he has given us. Perhaps he had half finished the book then discovered that the referendum was almost upon us thus the last few sketchy paragraphs only outlining thoughts and two line solutions.
Jim talks a bit like George Galloway in his 'just say NAW' road show - 'a man who wants to build an independent Scottish Socialist Republic- but not right now! It is a marvellous idea its just that its time either hasn't yet come or it has come and gone' - There is no great demand for it in a Scotland which sees Independence from UK (England) as a means to building the kind of country we aspire to be using what is realistically 'winnable' , politically and economically. The 'revolution' will take time both to develop and mature. It will be worth it and I won't be surprised in time if Scotland ends up in the same solution area as Jim wishes, it will simply take a different path to getting there, and will be a wee bit different......................and I,m sure Jim knows this.

Excellent contribution to the debate. This and Ian MacWhirter's "Road to Referendum" should be essential reading for all with open minds.
