Scotland and the United Kingdom : the economy and the Union in the twentieth century by C. H Lee( Book )

9 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 238 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study explores the economic case for Scotland's continued union with the UK. The growth of political support for the Scottish National Party during the past twenty years has generated substantial debate in Scotland about the relative virtues of independence or continued union with the United Kingdom. The exploitation of 'Scotland's oil' from the 1970s provided an economic basis for the case for independence. This book explores the case for union, devolution or independence on economic grounds. Professor Lee surveys the economic transition of the Scottish economy during the twentieth century in which much established heavy industry declined, leaving a legacy of unemployment and poverty for which new industries were unable fully to compensate. These severe economic problems - especially concentrated in central Scotland - focused attention on the role of the state in running the economy, particularly as such intervention greatly increased in the twentieth century. Government intervention has been influential through substantial increases in both taxation and public expenditure, as well as through regional and industrial policy

5 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An up-to-date and comprehensive history of the Scottish economy over the last 300 years This, the first book of its kind to appear in a generation is written by leading scholars in the field. It presents 'state of the art' research in an accessible style to all those interested in understanding the historical context of modern Scotland. Fresh interpretations are revealed on such key and controversial issues as the impact of the Union of 1707, the Clearances, the rise and fall of Scottish heavy industry and the recent transformation of the modern economy. The distinctive features of the Scottish economic system are stressed but these are also analysed within a British and international context. The focus of the volume is both broad and detailed with full treatment of agriculture, finance, industry and the service sector as well as the impact of momentous economic changes on the lives of the people and the massive new role in the twentieth century of the state in economic affairs

This book outlines the considerable increase in public expenditure in the UK from around 10 per cent of GDP in the 1870s to 40 per cent and above in the 21st century. Clive Lee explores the fluctuations in state spending, highlighting the ongoing political conflict over the size and extent of welfare provision. In this detailed and comprehensive analysis of governmental spending over the past 130 years, Clive Lee explains how and why public expenditure rose from little more than 10% of the national income to over 40% in recent years, and the sea change in attitudes about the role and nature of government that accompanied this rise. Clive Lee combines vivid social history with close economic analysis to provide a detailed picture of political forces in the UK from Victorian times to the present day, documenting the standoffs of Liberals, socialists and conservatives, the riseof the Labour party and the impact of the Thatcher years on expenditure and the public sector
