From the shaping of a mongrel nation to independence debates in light of Brexit, this illuminating guide offers a detailed and comprehensive overview of Scottish history from the ninth century to the present day. Allan I. Macinnes examines Scotland's heritage as significant and compelling in its own right, rather than reducing it to an offshoot of England's past. The result is a thorough yet cohesive narrative of the country's history, from Gaelic clans to sixteenth-century witch hunts, William Wallace to Thatcherism.
Combining outstanding breadth of coverage with rigorous scholarship, this is an essential companion for all students of Scottish history. Engaging and accessible, it is also ideal for anyone with an interest in Scotland's national development.
