  4. I am just about to submit the manuscript of an exciting new book to the Press at the end of May. The title is ‘Northern Neighbours: Scotland and Norway since 1800’, and the book is edited by myself, Ottar Brox and Lesley Riddoch. The authors are from Scotland, Norway, England and Finland. I will post a short description, and also the list of chapters.

  5. NORTHERN NEIGHBOURS: SCOTLAND AND NORWAY SINCE 1800.
    Edited by: John Bryden, Ottar Brox and Lesley Riddoch.
    To be published by Edinburgh University Press, Autumn 2014.

    What is this book about?
    This book asks how and why Scotland and Norway diverged from each other so sharply in political, economic and social terms since the 18th century. The book focuses on seven core, and several attendant or related, reasons for these divergences. These are first, land and natural resource ownership, distribution, access and use rights; second, that of union with a richer and more powerful neighbour in the case of Scotland especially the Union of Parliaments in the 1707, and independence from a richer and more powerful neighbour in the case of Norway in 1814; third, the development of political systems and politics, especially since the early 19th century, when very significant differences in the franchise emerged between Scotland and Norway; fourth, the evolution of local government since the mid 19th century but reflecting also on the precursors of parish government and the role of religious governance; fifth, the development of the welfare state, especially in the 20th century; sixth, the structure and development of agriculture and the nature of the agrarian revolutions from 1750; seventh, the nature of early and late industrialization and, more recently, the development of North Sea Oil. The analysis therefore goes well beyond the usual discussions of the Nordic Model, which are often confined to an analysis of the economic model, the social welfare model and the political model.
