9780500282335: Scotland: A Concise History, Second Revised Edition

"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." He may have exaggerated, but undeniably Scotland has a rough and bloodstained history.

It is a complex one too, but Sir Fitzroy Maclean disentangles the threads and enlivens his brisk account with both wit and scholarship. Pictures from authentic contemporary sources illuminate his story--its romantic figures and bloody battles, its politics and religion--and provide a rich visual record of Scotland's art, craftsmanship, and intellectual life. For this revised edition, the distinguished journalist Magnus Linklater (former editor of The Scotsman), explores the renewed strengths of Scottish identity as the country enters the new millennium with a new parliament. 250 b/w illustrations. 250 black-and-white illustrations

About the Author:

Fitzroy Maclean for many years held important posts in the British diplomatic service, armed forces, and government. His books include Highlanders: A History of the Highland Clans. He died in 1996.

Magnus Linklater is a Scottish journalist who lives in Edinburgh.

Review:

A truly remarkable collection of illustrations, mostly unfamiliar, gathered with excellent judgement from many sources and beautifully reproduced. -- Times Literary Supplement

Magnificently illustrated, it is a constant visual delight . . . an admirable introduction to a fascinating subject. -- The Scotsman
