Abstract and Keywords

This article starts by presenting the academic interpretation, and also argues that much of it rests on shaky foundations. The Marxist scholar, David Craig, wrote The Real Foundations. This book dwelt on base-superstructure relations in industrial society. The fate of various cultures is discussed. The study of how institutional change ‘beds itself in’ ought to occupy political scientists more than it has done. The relationship between the devolved governments and the Union state raise the peculiar nature of responsibilities within the Cabinet that carried devolution. If national identity becomes concentrated on political institutions, conflicts are likely to be much more explicit.

Keywords: Scotland, Wales, David Craig, The Real Foundations, devolution, Cabinet, Union
