Abstract

Book abstract: In poverty in Scotland 2007 we were able to locate our discussions within the context of Scottish devolution. Written largely in late 2006, Poverty in Scotland 2007 looked forward to the May 2007 Scottish parliament elections, contributing to the debates that emerged, not only around the question of poverty in Scot land, but also around wider matters of social and economic inequality, public service provision, taxation and a range of other social issues relating to health, education and employability among others.
