  • Von der Wahrheit zur Wahrscheinlichkeitby Annette Meyer

    De Gruyter 2008; US$ 182.00

    In the 18th century, the science of man opened up the conceptual framework for re-interpreting the origins and development of the human species itself.

Borrowing from scientific methods, the Scottish Enlightenment developed a model... more...

    Charles II’s ascent to the throne came at a time of national turbulence: his father had been beheaded, and rival Cromwell threatened his right to rein.

    Mainstream Publishing 2011; US$ 13.92

    Culloden was the last battle on British soil. It marked the end of clan culture and was the harbinger of the Highland Clearances.

  • Downfallby Alan McCombes

    Birlinn 2011; US$ 6.75

    From prison cell to the political limelight, and back again, there is no doubt that Tommy Sheridan – tanned, handsome and armed with a soundbite for every occasion – was one of the most colourful figures in the drab, dusty world of party politics. Yet behind the charismatic exterior of the man who first came to public notice during the anti-Poll Tax... more...

  • Andrew Fletcher and the Treaty of the Unionby P.H. Scott

    Birlinn 2013; US$ 7.28

    Andrew Fletcher has been known since his own lifetime as "The Patriot" because of his determined resistance to the parliamentary Union of Scotland and England in 1707.

  • The Jacobite Movement in Scotland and in Exile, 1746-1759by Dr Doron Zimmermann

    Palgrave Macmillan 2003; US$ 150.00

    The argument presented in this book arose from an extension to the question whether the suppression of the Jacobite Rising of 1745-46, as represented by a long-standing historiographical consensus, spelled the end of Jacobite hopes, and British fears, of another restoration attempt. more...

  • Jacobite Storiesby Dane Love

    Neil Wilson Publishing 2011; US$ 14.57

    For too long, this period of Scottish history has been romanticised with the exploits of Bonnie Prince Charlie to the fore. Dane Love's personal interest in his ancestors has made him research the lives of ordinary men and women who lived, fought and died during this period and the result is a highly readable account of the Jacobite era. All the main... more...
