Book Overview

"Magnificently illustrated, it is a constant visual delight . . . an admirable introduction to a fascinating subject." -- The Scotsman "The Scots," said a censorious English member of Parliament in 1607,"have not suffered above two kings to die in their beds these two hundredyears." He may have exaggerated, but undeniably Scotland has a roughand bloodstained history.Continuously in print for more than forty years and renowned to thisday for the authority and wit with which it disentangles the complex threadsof Scotland's rich history, Fitzroy Maclean's classic work has been broughtup to date with recent events in the path to Scottish independence. Picturesfrom authentic contemporary sources illuminate the story--its romanticfigures, battles, politics, and religion--and provide a rich visual recordof Scotland's art, craftsmanship, and intellectual life.
