Originally published in 2004. In recent years, there has been much debate about the economic performance of the Scottish economy in relation to the economy of Britain as a whole. However, with the establishment of the Scottish Parliament, the debate has shifted somewhat to focus on the economic disparities between areas within Scotland. Leading Scottish regional scientists are brought together in this volume to examine the nature, causes and consequences of these regional economic disparities. Following an introductory overview, the book divides into two main sections. The first section examines and compares three key areas in detail: the Highlands and Islands; Edinburgh and its hinterland; and Greater Glasgow. The second section covers a number of cross-cutting issues, such as economic development, education and training, transport and communications and community planning. It concludes with a critical appraisal of the various policies discussed and their implications.
