Biteback has signed an insider account of the Scottish independence referendum, by Daily Telegraph journalist Alan Cochrane.
Alex Salmond – My Part in his Downfall draws on Cochrane's diaries, columns and interviews with politicians, written over the past three years, covering the entire independence campaign.
Cochrane, the Scottish editor of the Telegraph, was described by Salmond's wife as a "ghastly man" and had close access to politicians throughout the events of the campaign. The book is described as an account of "the cynical, the chaotic, the incompetent and the cruel world of politics, sparing no one from with withering observations."
Biteback m.d. Iain Dale signed world rights from Cochrane. It will be released on 18th November as an £18.99 hardback.
