    • Save £17.01
    Presented in this highly personal account, former Prime Minister Gordon Brown lays bare his family's ancestry over 300 years of the Union and explains how it has shaped his life.

    Charting what it was like growing up in Scotland in the 1950s and 1960s, and explaining the influence of religion, education and Scotland's unique industrial structure on the shaping of his - and Scotland's - identity, he sets out the dramatic economic, social and cultural changes of the past 50 years and the vastly different prospects his children will face with or without Scottish independence.

    With the referendum on Scottish independence being a hot topic for debate recently, Brown argues that Scotland will prosper with a strong Scottish Parliament that is part of the UK. Agree or disagree, My Scotland, Our Britain is an enlightening, eye-opening and honest account of how a nation's history has shaped one man's present and how our choices can shape the future of the next generation.
