What is land reform? Will the Scottish parliament make a difference? This work argues that nothing less than a radical, comprehensive programme of land reform can make the difference that is needed. It clarifies the complexities of land ownership in Scotland, and explodes the myth that land issues are relevant only to the far flung fringes of rural Scotland. The book also questions mainstream political commitment to land reform, while the author offers his own programme for change with a vision of how Scotland can move from outmoded, unjust power structures towards a more equitable landowning democracy.
