Ranging from the fourteenth to the seventeenth century the book analyses the ties that bound together pre-modern societies. New insights are offered into the reigns of, amongst others, James II, James III, Mary, queen of Scots and James VI, while the Declaration of Arbroath is reassessed. Wormald’s famously upbeat assessment of the achievements of Stewart Renaissance monarchy and the cohesion of the Scottish polity in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries is examined in a series of chapters that develop further, amend or contest her interpretations.
