At a time of acute interest in Scottish independence, the book charts the Treasury's response to Scottish claims from the late 19th century until the 1979 referendum. Key issues include Highland depopulation, fisheries, universities, support for farming, new towns, regional policy, North Sea Oil, budgetary responsibility and the Barnett formula.
