Synopsis: For the British government's supporters in Scotland in the 1790s, one thing was paramount: they were fighting French principles in any shape or form they might take. Whether this meant defeating the influence of French revolutionary ideas in Scotland, or defeating the military menace of the French republic, they were determined to stand firm in their support of the British state. This book charts the Scottish contribution to, both the war effort of the 1790s, and the British government's struggles to defeat political radicalism at home; lasting from the first outbreak of political disturbances in Scotland in 1792, until the French revolutionary war came to an end in 1802. In this, the Scots made their very distinct mark in terms of recruitment for armed service, demonstrations of loyalty, and prosecutions against political radicals in the law courts but, perhaps less so, in terms of their financial contributions . The government of Scotland was further integrated into the British state in a structural sense over the course of the decade, yet retained many distinctly Scottish features none the less and - on the whole - the 1790s comes across as a time when the Scots found little difficulty in seeing themselves as both British and Scottish.

About the Author:

Book Description EDINBURGH UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2015. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This book deals with Scotland s role in the French Revolutionary Wars. What role did Scotland play in the British state s war against Revolutionary France, and its efforts to halt the influence of French revolutionary political ideology at home? This book examines the Scottish contribution to the British state during the 1790s, with a view to establish how the government of Scotland met and handled the specific challenges it faced over the course of the decade, and the extent to which the Scots rallied to the defence of Britain at this time of crisis. In dealing with the government of Scotland, emphasis is placed on the relationship between the central government in London and local government officials in Scotland, and the degree of interaction which took place between the two, as well as on the political trials which followed the government s decision to bring some of the leading radicals before the Scottish law courts on a charge of sedition.Two crucial aspects of the Scottish contribution to the war effort - the recruitment of men for service in the armed forces, and the financing of military operations - are covered, as is the support the government received from the Scottish public, in the shape of demonstrations of loyalty and loyalist ideology. This is an archival study of Scotland s role in the French Revolution. It examines the Scottish government s level of involvement. It covers political trials and military recruitment. It looks at loyalist demonstrations and ideology. It analyses financial backing of wars. Bookseller Inventory # AA79781474403313
