Product description

Synopsis

This text traces the development of the Scottish marine and its institutions during the highly turbulent and formative period 1650-1790, when state intervention and warefare at sea in the pursuit of mercantilist goals largely determined, intentionally and otherwise, the course of events. The book charts Scotland's frustrated attempts to join England in the Atlantic economy and so secure her prosperity - an often bitter relationship that culminated in the Darien Disaster. In the years that followed, maritime affairs were at the heart of the schism that propelled the move to embrace the full incorporating Act of Union of 1707. After 1707 Scottish maritime aspirations flourished under the protection of the British Navigation acts and the windfalls of endemic warfare at sea. The impact of major events, domestic and international, on Scottish maritime affairs has been place in context of the changes of the prevailing system. Warfare has particular relevance as the isolated location of many Scottish ports and sea areas actively encouraged enemy shipping to penetrate deep into Scottish home waters.

The national and regional experience has, therefore, been set in "war and peace" apsects covering three periods: 1651-1755, 1756-75 and 1776-91, each a distinct phase in Scotland's participation in the evolving mercantilist trading system when a major war provided the principal catalyst for change.
