Covering a staggering period from the Pictish peoples and their symbol stones to modern devolution, Mitchison's absorbing narrative remains the classic introduction to Scottish history.
This beautifully written text covers the key social and political aspects of the growth of this nation, and comprises cultural systems of thought such as early witchcraft beliefs and the Scottish Enlightenment. Now with a new introduction by the author and an epilogue by David McCrone, this wide-ranging and unique account remains one of the finest histories of Scotland.
