Product Description

Review

'A book from beyond the grave... and though it is unfinished, there is no mistaking the sting in the tale.' -- Magnus Linklater, The Spectator, May 31, 2008

'Characterised by seductively readable prose... it is undoubtedly helpful to have... Trevor-Roper's Scottish researches published in a single volume. '
-- Clare Jackson, Literary Review, May 2008

'Decades after the author died, [this book] deserves to be retrieved. Cater has performed a significant literary and historical service.' -- Tam Dalyell, The Scotsman, 31st May 2008

'For those concerned with the academic legacy of Hugh Trevor-Roper, this must be a welcome addition to the canon.'
-- Stuart Kelly, Scotland on Sunday, 25th May 2008

'This witty and elegantly written book will delight any reader with an open mind.' -- Adam Sisman, Sunday Telegraph, 8th June 2008

'This work... reminds us of that (Hugh Trevor-Roper's) talent... This [is a] vastly entertaining and highly intelligent book.' -- Simon Heffer, Daily Telegraph, 7th June 2008

'Trevor-Roper is generous in his admiration for a Celtic culture capable of discovering and developing itself by devising its own identity.' -- The Times, 31st May 2008

'Written with Hugh Trevor-Roper's characteristic grace and pungency... an enlightening and entertaining work.' -- Standpoint, July 2008
