The inside story of Scotland's first General Election - a record of events in public and behind the scenes as witnessed by Murray Ritchie, Scottish political editor of The Herald newspaper. A personal record provides a study of how rival politicians and parties campaigned to win over electors and to impress public opinion through the media. Political strategists resorted to the black arts, placing unprecedented pressure on newspapers, as they conducted the toughest campaign in Scottish history. An account of how politicians reacted before the cameras and in private to the peaks and troughs of a fascinating campaign.
