- How David Cameron Saved Scotland
- Paperback - Luath Press
David Cameron was Prime Minister throughout the campaign for Scottish independence. People thought if the Scots voted 'yes' for independence that he may lose his job. But Scotland voted 'no', so where does that leave him? As leader of the unionist campaign, it is sensible to ask ourselves how he won the victory. One method might be to write and ask Mr Cameron how he did it. But, as Prime Minister, he may be too busy to reply, so Owen Dudley Edwards has helpfully written to inform Mr Cameron how he did it, sometimes telling him things he may not know or has only dimly guessed.

- Solway Country: Land, Life And Livelihood In A Trans-Border Region
- Hardback - Cambridge Scholars Publishing
The Solway Country - the lands surrounding the inner Solway Firth - constitutes one of the many small regional worlds of the British Isles that are remarkable for the ways in which their landscapes evoke a powerful sense of territorial identity rooted not only in their physical appeal, but also in the richness and distinctiveness of their human history and geography. This book captures the spirit and substance of the Solway Country's allure by means of a series of layered narratives dealing with its natural milieu, its past social and political turmoil, its changing forms of rural and agrarian life, and its responses to the industrial and urban forces that were unleashed in Britain after the 18th century.
