In Place of Fear II: A Socialist Programme for an Independent Scotland
Buy In Place of Fear II, Jim Sillar’s contribution to the referendum debate, on this site – £4.95 and no delivery charge within the UK (overseas postage £4.50 per order).
Jim Sillars argues convincingly that the referendum gives the Scottish people the power to create a better country, helps renew our belief in socialism as the answer to the economic and social crisis facing the country, and challenges the idea in the Yes campaign that independence means “change but no change” and that a Yes voter endorses Alex Salmond and the SNP. There is a far more radical road, with better policies than those Salmond is offering in the first independence elections in 2016. This book demonstrates what the Labour party has been keen to hide: that socialist ideas in Scotland have always been obstructed by the London connection.
Independence is not only for Scotland, but for the Labour party too, and for socialists within it. Independence will strengthen the position of working people and their families, and remove fear from their lives.
