This illuminating and insightful guide offers a comprehensive overview of Scottish history, from the kingdom’s genesis in the ninth century to the independence debates of the present day. Considering both internal dynamics and international horizons, Allan Macinnes asserts Scotland’s heritage as significant and compelling in its own right, rather than reducing it to an offshoot of England’s past. 

Rigorous and wide-ranging, this textbook is an essential companion for undergraduate and postgraduate students of History. Its lively and accessible style makes it suitable for anyone with an interest in Scotland’s national development.

Index
To take on the long history of the Scottish nation in a single volume is a prodigious challenge, and Allan Macinnes has risen to the task magnificently. This is a lucid, well-balanced account, full of insight, analysis and no little wit. – Graeme Morton, University of Dundee, UK
This book provides a wide-ranging and readable survey of Scottish history from the medieval era to the present. With clear prose and entertaining anecdotes, Macinnes introduces his readers to the most important personalities, events, and debates in Scotland’s past. – Michelle D. Brock, Washington and Lee University, USA
