The Flag in the Wind

That excellent Scottish publisher Birlinn has just re-published an updated version of John MacCormick's book, The Flag in the Wind. It tells the story of the National Movement in Scotland, the birth of the SNP, and also MacCormick's campaign to become Rector of Glasgow University. This edition has an introduction by John's son, Professor Sir Neil MacCormick, and a foreword by Ian Hamilton, whose own book, Stone of Destiny, was also recently republished by Birlinn (to tie in with the film of the same name).

The book is to be launched next week by the First Minister Alex Salmond. You can buy it by visiting the Birlinn website.
