Description

Future academics studying Alex Salmond may be puzzled by the portrayal of the man who stood at the epicentre of Scotland’s recent history. Journalistic hysteria surrounding the leader of the independence campaign created a cross between a suave, sophisticated Bond villain and a freedom-screaming, blue-faced barbarian, intent on smashing old orders, destroying ancient certainties and tearing up Britannia’s rule book.

But who is the man behind the headlines? It takes someone with a grasp of the great sweep of history’s narrative to get inside the head of a man who led a movement.

Fortunately, we have one to hand. Professor Sir Tom Devine has spent a lifetime examining in forensic detail the evidence and the people caught up in history’s great events, and now he has his sights on Alex Salmond.
Professor Sir Tom is an inquisitor with a laser-like intellect, and he has the ultimate source material for very latest chapter of Scotland’s story right in front of him. He intends to get to the heart of the man who ruined the Prime Ministers sleep and inadvertently made the Queen purr.

Will there be blood on the walls? Not literally, obviously. For one thing, the lovely people at the Methodists have just got a new carpet in, and we don’t want to ruin it, but this is sure to be a boisterous exchange of lively views and opinions.

Book early. Alex Salmond. Tom Devine. This is one cross-examination you do not want to miss.
