A new edition of a classic introduction to the history of eighteenth-century Scotland. First published in 1970 it has acquired a new relevance in light of the current political situation in post-devolution Scotland. Explores the history of government, politics, religion, law, education and ideology in this remarkably fertile period and characterises some of the astonishing cultural and economic achievements of this 'semi-independent' eighteenth-century country.
