Scotland decides its future a year from now. The Herald’s political analyst, Iain MacWhirter, talks about how the nation reached the crossroads of independence.

He offers some surprising conclusions.

In a compelling series of television documentaries and an accompanying book, Road to Referendum, the Sunday Herald political journalist Iain Macwhirter explains why the end of the British Empire, the collapse of the Kirk and the questioning of the post-war welfare settlement in England has left Scotland in a state of constitutional confusion.
