9780748618002: Kingship and Unity: Scotland 1000-1306 (The New History of Scotland)

In AD 1000, the Scottish kings embarked on a dramatic expansion of their territories. Geoffrey Barrow describes the evolution of Scottish kingship and government during the period. He examines the character of Scottish feudalism, considers how Scotland's landscape influenced its society and outlook on the world, and traces the growth of a sense of national identity up to 1306 and the coronation of Robert the Bruce as Robert I. Updated throughout, the new edition includes a new chapter on education and learning. The volume includes a chronology, suggestions for further reading, a glossary, and a genealogy.

About the Author:

Geoffrey Barrow is Professor Emeritus of Scottish History at the University of Glasgow.

Review:

The sense of place and the sense of lineage pervade this book, combining with the author's wide-ranging command of the period in its broader dimensions to give the reader a picture of medieval Scotland which surely surpasses anything hitherto available both in the clarity of its outline and the sharpness of the illustrative detail.... a combination of the general with the particular which is the lifeblood of historical writing.
