‘The Scots’, said a censorious English member of Parliament in 1607, ‘have not suffered above two kings to die in their beds these two hundred years.’ Undeniably, Scotland has had a rough, bloodstained and complex history. The late Fitzroy Maclean and Magnus Linklater disentangle the threads, and enliven their brisk account with wit and scholarship. Pictures from authentic contemporary sources illuminate the story - its romantic figures and bloody battles, its politics and religion - and provide a record of Scotland’s art, craftsmanship and intellectual life.
