In this collection of essays, Mark Perryman is concerned with similar issues, although his perspective is an English, and far less eccentric, one. But he argues for the total dissolution of the UK, and a rescue of English national pride from the irresponsible clutches of the far right, invoking Billy Bragg on this recurring, uplifting theme: Englishness has more to do with space than race. It is a kind of sequel to Tom Nairn’s landmark book The Break-up of Britain (1977), which predicted that a radical left breakthrough in England would lead to the fragmentation of the Union.

May 2009 will be the tenth anniversary of the first elections to the Scottish Parliament and Welsh Assembly. This was the beginning of a decade of change - which now includes the restoration of powers to Stormont - that is showing every sign of being an irreversible process. Breaking Up Britain is a unique collection of English, Scottish, Welsh and Irish contributors, featuring key political activists from the nationalist parties, commentators and campaigners, academics and journalists. Each writer explores the change that the break-up demands in their own nation, but also discusses its impact upon the whole. This dialogue of differences is essential reading for anyone interested in the shape of politics and culture after a Union. 'This brilliant book helps us understand what Scots, Welsh, Irish and English neighbours, freed from an unhappy Union, might look like.' Billy Bragg
