I really enjoyed this satirical romp through the world of 70's comics. I can't wait to read the next installment and find out how the story progresses.

5.0 out of 5 stars A quality read, 23 Sept. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Like his earlier book road to referendum this is an interesting and illuminating snapshot of Scottish history. Unfortunately Macwhirter lacks knowledge of nationalist politics and their motivation and at times this shows. As a recent convert to independence he imagines that serious nationalism is a recent phenomenon when in fact quality arguments have been consistently made for independence since the SNP's inception. Nonetheless he is probably the best journalist writing in Scotland today and the book is well written and interesting.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic and prolific film maker, 27 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A snip at approx two quid per film! Woody is a fantastic and prolific film maker who has directed an incredible 47 films over the last 46 years. His work is constantly challenging and experimental yet always consistent in its quality. These are 20 of his earliest films. I am currently reading Conversations with Woody Allen by Eric Lax which I would recommend as well. An illuminating insight into one of cinema's most talented and original visionaries.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent introduction to Cornish nationalism, 2 Jan. 2007
Highly informative and educational look at the Cornish nationalist movement and it's main proponents, Mebyon Kernow, the party of Cornwall.

This books covers a lot of the history and culture of the Celtic nation of Cornwall and it tells the full story of MK from it's earliest beginnings to the current situation.

A valuable resource for anyone who is seriously interested in Cornish politics and Cornish independence.


Old Scotland, New Scotland (Luath Guides)

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant concise guide to Scottish history and politics, 30 July 2006
Jeff Fallow's 'Old Scotland, New Scotland' is a revised and reworked version of his earlier 'Revolting Scotland'.

It cuts right to the heart of the Scottish experience from our past history (told in distinctly unromantic and truthful terms) right through to our possible future as a free and independent nation. Fallow leaves us in no doubt that Scotland's future destiny is in our own hands and he explains exactly why.

The hidden radical and revolutionary history of Scotland is explored in depth, as is our relationship with England and the roots of modern civic Scottish nationalism.

Anyone who wants a realistic and readable guide to the current political situation in Scotland and the reasons for it need look no further than this superb graphic novel.
