    Kenneth Roy's panorama of post-war Scottish life begins with the VE Night celebrations in the spring of 1945 and proceeds year by year to November 1975, when the first North Sea oil was pumped ashore. Using a wealth of contemporary accounts, the book tells a complex and often disturbing story of a country riven by poverty, struggling for a sense of its own identity, and ill-served by its masters. With a new, post-Independence Referendum afterword by the author.
