This book is a good introduction to the Treaty of Union 1707.
For sure, being the product of one person, it is one view but I don't agree with the first reviewer that it is part of a "long series of nationalist diatribes". In fact, Mr Henderson Scott does not express a modern day view on the Treaty anywhere in the book and most of his arguments are historical and based on quotes from documents and letter.
I would say this is a well researched book though, being rather thin at 85 pages, I am left wondering how selective Mr Henderson Paul might have been in his use of research material. At the end of the day, though an extremely important aspect of Scottish politics for the next few years, this is a first stab at an much misunderstood and much unknown subject.
Perhaps the first reviewer should put pen to paper add to the debate through research?
