Luath Press Ltd

Luath Press takes its name from Robert Burns, whose little collie Luath (Gael., swift or nimble) tripped up Jean Armour at a wedding and gave him the chance to speak to the woman who was to be his wife and the abiding love of his life. Burns called one of ' The Twa Dogs' Luath after Cuchullin's hunting dog in Ossian's Fingal. Luath Press was established in 1981 in the heart of Burns country, and is now based a few steps up the road from Burns' first lodgings on Edinburgh's Royal Mile.

Product Description


The current social security system is unwieldy, complex, unjust and unfit for purpose. It is a Gordian Knot that cannot be unravelled or reformed, which must be cut through and replaced by a system fit for the 21st century. Basic Income is just such a system, providing a regular, unconditional payment to every citizen in the country and redefining the relationship between the state, society and the individual. Following on from A Basic Income Handbook, Annie Miller here expands on her rigorous research to put it in the context of our ever-changing political climate to give the reader an understanding of how a Basic Income could benefit the state of social security in a post-Brexit Britain.
