A history of the small Orcadian island of Sanday (the then base of anarchist publisher Cienfuegos Press), — with an introduction by the publisher, Stuart Christie — to the Rev. Alexander Goodfellow’s ‘A visit to the Island of Sanday’. It is a commentary on nationalism and Scottish independence that proposes an alternative system of direct democracy and self-managed federalism. The Reverend Alexander Goodfellow’s Church History of Sanday (1912) is, of course, a partial one in both senses of the word; but a small island like Sanday cannot pick and chose its historians and any future chronicler must draw on this valuable and pioneering account . . .
