Additional Product Information
This is very much a social history of Scotland - the first half of the work traces the growth of the Scottish nation and describes the social impact of the Reformation, the settling of the countryside and the different types of agriculture, the emergence of the burghs and the activities of the merchants. The second, taking the point of the division in 1690, considers the relations of state and church, the transformation of the economy and the problems of population. The Highlands have a chapter to themselves. The book concludes with a survey of education and of the social change and intellectual achievement of the golden age of Scottish culture.
A good copy with the original dustcover protected by a poly cover although there is some fading and fraying at the edges which probably pre-dates the cover. Inside the pages are bright and clean throughout with just the usual age-related tanning of the paper.
