e-book: 42 reasons to support Scottish independence

The e-book, based on a series here on oD, is launched today - get your copy now.

Today, my e-book “42 reasons to support Scottish independence” comes out. That's one reason for today, and another for each day until polls close on the 18th of September.

It is largely based on the series “40 reasons to support Scottish independence”, here on openDemocracy. But it's been helpfully edited by the excellent Dan Hind, and I've thrown in two additions: one based on an earlier piece, also on this site, and another new one (though somewhat cribbed from a speech I gave back in 2005 at the launch of the youth independence convention).

Those of us who have little time for flag waving nationalism of either the union or saltire variety need to find a way to navigate this debate. In this e-book, I go through 42 reasons why people who yearn for more democracy and greater equality should hope that Scotland votes yes in September – not simply for the short term reason that the policies of the SNP are better than those of the coalition (though they are), but, well, for 42 other reasons, longer term reasons.

You can get the e-book for £1.99 here. Enjoy.
