Product description

Review

A masterly work and essential reading for students of Scottish history. Brilliant! a summation of three decades of scholarly thought and endeavour! This book is the work of a superbly accomplished historian, and it distils for us in masterly fashion the essence of early medieval Scotland. The sense of place and the sense of lineage pervade this book, combining with the author's wide-ranging command of the period in its broader dimensions to give the reader a picture of medieval Scotland which surely surpasses anything hitherto available both in the clarity of its outline and the sharpness of the illustrative detail! a combination of the general with the particular which is the lifeblood of historical writing.
