HC signs Alex Salmond on referendum

William Collins has signed an inside take on the Scottish independence referendum by former First Minister of Scotland and leader of the Yes campaign, Alex Salmond.

David Roth-Ey, executive publisher of Fourth Estate and William Collins, signed world English language rights to The Dream Shall Never Die: 100 Days that Changed Scotland Forever, in a deal with Caroline Michel at Peters, Fraser & Dunlop. It will be released on 19th March 2015.

The book is described as a "frank, honest and revealing" look at the campaign for Scottish independence, that also looks ahead at the impact of the debate on the future of Scotland and the UK.

Salmond said: "The referendum changed Scotland for ever. This is my story of the campaign and hopes for the future of the nation."

Roth-Ey said: "For anyone who was inspired by the indomitable spirit of the Scottish independence campaign, Alex Salmond’s The Dream Shall Never Die is a must read:  a masterclass in the power of progressive politics by one of the biggest figures in UK politics."
