On 18 September 2014, Scots will decide their future: should the country quit the United Kingdom and take control of its own destiny, or should it remain part of what advocates call the most successful political and economic union of modern times? Everyone in the country has a stake in this decision. Now, in this fascinating and insightful new book, David Torrance charts the countdown to the big day, weaving his way through a minefield of claim and counterclaim, and knocking down fictions and fallacies from both Nationalists and Unionists. He plunges into the key questions that have shaped an often-fraught argument, from the future of the pound to the shape of an independent Scottish army. With access to the strategists and opinion-makers on both sides of the political divide, this book goes straight to the heart of the great debate, providing an incisive, authoritative, occasionally trenchant guide to the most dramatic constitutional question of our times - the battle for Britain.

This pioneering volume focuses on the scale, territorial trajectories, impact, economic relationships, identity and nature of the Scottish-Asia connection from the late seventeenth century to the present. It is especially concerned with identifying whether there was a distinctive Scottish experience and if so, what effect it had on the East. Did Scots bring different skills to Asia and how far did their backgrounds prepare them in different ways? Were their networks distinctive compared to other ethnicities? What was the pull of Asia for them? Did they really punch above their weight as some contemporaries thought, or was that just exaggerated rhetoric? If there was a distinctive ‘Scottish effect’ how is that to be explained?

Libel and the Media is the first study to explore the impact of the law of defamation on the media. Based on extensive interviews with media lawyers, journalists, producers, and editors, it describes the efforts made by newspapers, television, book, and magazine publishers to avoid the risk of an expensive libel action - and the sorts of stories which are amended or suppressed. The authors, a distinguished group of highly respected academics, examine the present state of libel law (including the Neill reforms and the law in Scotland), and go on to give statistical information about the incidence of libel claims, and their effects on the daily work of newspapers and other media outlets. This is an entertaining book which will appeal not only to journalists and lawyers, but also to all those with an interest in the freedom of the press and media studies generally.

Russell Findlay spent decades taking on the most dangerous men in Scotland’s criminal underworld. Organised crime clans such as the Daniels, Lyons and McGoverns were unmasked by Findlay and his colleagues at the Sunday Mail and Scottish Sun. Also targeted were figures such as Paul Ferris, Frankie ‘Donuts’ Donaldson, Barry Hughes, James ‘Jasper’ McCann and Kevin ‘Gerbil’ Carroll. Two days before Christmas 2015, Findlay became the target of an unprecedented attack. Disguised as a postman, William ‘Basil’ Burns came to the journalist’s home and hurled sulphuric acid in his face. But Burns then lost control of his knife and was overpowered by Findlay who handed him over to the police. Taking the botched hit as his starting point, Findlay unravels the identity of those suspected of hiring Burns, at the same time giving a unique insight into the criminal landscape of modern Scotland and explaining how journalists risk their safety to expose dangerous and depraved crime bosses. In some cases it is not just criminals they are up against – police, lawyers and even others within the media can conspire to make their work even more dangerous.

"Whilst lip service has often been paid by judges and politicians to the importance of public access to court proceedings and its corollary of free media reporting, a trawl through common law jurisdictions reveals in reality a heavily circumscribed notion of open justice. Outside the United States where the media enjoy a considerable degree of freedom under the First Amendment to publish material relating to legal proceedings, judges and legislators elsewhere in common law jurisdictions have long subordinated media freedom to report and comment upon matters relating to the administration of justice in order to safeguard the fairness of individual proceedings and / or the more general interest of maintaining public confidence in the administration of justice." - from the Introduction.
