Many aspects of the country are emerging in a new light: social changes, economic pressures, European links. This book sees the period as a struggle for right order in the kingdom for order in kingship and government, in the laws of the land and the courts of law, in the Scottish Church, and in the development of university education. In this struggle William Elphinstone as Chancellor of the kingdom, Keeper of the Privy Seal, bishop of Aberdeen and founder of its University was deeply involved. This study, then, is much more than a biography. It rigorously investigates the strengths and weaknesses of all these institutions, and fully documents Elphinstone's part in the attempt to bring order to an often troubled kingdom.
