Good treatment, but with shortcomings,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Kingdom or Province?: Scotland and the Regal Union, 1603-1715 (British History in Perspective) (Paperback)
This book provides a useful overview of the aspect of Scottish history stated in the title. However essential terms are not always explained clearly enough (e.g. "resolutioners" vs. "remonstrators"), so that external help is needed: a glossary would have been useful. Also, the author is very lax in his use (or rather non-use) of commas, which can sometimes be a hinderance. In more than one place careless expression makes the meaning ambiguous, and the number of spelling mistakes is dismaying. The dying profession of copy editor urgently needs to be revived in the publishing trade!
