Review

“This book is nothing if not comprehensive” (Frost Magazine, August 2014)

From the Back Cover

Learn about:

  • The history of Scotland from the Stone Age to today
  • The Industrial Revolution and Highland Clearances
  • Independence drives through the ages
  • World wars and the 20th century

Explore the rich and fascinating history of Scotland

Want to discover how a small country on the edge of northern Europe packs an almighty historical punch? Scottish History For Dummies is your guide to the story of Scotland and her place within the historical narratives of Britain, Europe and the rest of the world. From the Beaker people right up to the present day, it’s all inside.

  • Meet the peoples of Scotland – get to know how the peoples who lived through the Stone, Bronze and Iron ages lived, what they ate and how they were viewed by the Romans
  • Witness the making of a kingdom – discover how the Kingdom of Alba came to be ― thanks largely to the actions of Kenneth MacAlpin, whose Gaels defeated the Picts
  • Encounter the superheroes of Scottish history – meet the men whose battles against English domination created the nation of Scotland: William Wallace and Robert the Bruce
  • Travel through Great Britain and its Empire – explore the events surrounding the unmaking of Scotland as a nation during the 18th century and how they impacted Scottish national identity
  • Explore an industrial economy – pull back the curtain on how Scotland was built into an industrial economy by inventors, explorers and missionaries

Open the book and find:

  • The Roman invasion and (near) conquest of Scotland
  • Scotland’s politics, languages and religion
  • The reigns of William I, Alexander II and Alexander III
  • The Wars of Independence
  • Scotland during the Renaissance
  • Charles I and the Wars of the Three Kingdoms
  • Industrialisation and the Highland Clearances
  • The making of modern Scotland
