Overview

Are there two Scotlands, one with means and one without? It would appear that certain regions offer significantly higher pay and more opportunities than others. It would also appear that the differences are growing greater. In an effort to identify and quantify the differences, the editors and contributors offer 12 papers addressing the specifics of economic disparity in Scotland since 1945. They trace the changes in industry, such as the decline of shipping and growth of industries related to North Sea oil, recent events in the economy of Edinburgh and Glasgow, the challenges faced in the south, the Highlands and Islands, and the nature of economic development. They address issues such as disparities in vocational education and training, transport, urban regeneration, community planning, and policies. Each paper contains its own references.
