What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

Shaw's book is to be welcomed precisely because it is (courteously) provocative and because it tries to deal with problems rather than being concerned merely to deliver a narrative for those unfamiliar with the period.' - Emma Vincent Macleod, H-Albion

'The author sets out to discuss issues rather than provide a narrative for students who are wholly unfamiliar with the period. His work is clearly written and readable and the chapters are subdivided in a way that aids notemaking.' - Scottish Consultative Council on the Curriculum, Annotated Bibliography for Georgians and Jacobites: Scotland 1715-1800

'This...will make an ideal textbook for students in the expanded teaching of Scottish history that everyone wants to see.' - Michael Fry, The Herald
