Few events in our history have had such lasting consequences as the Union of 1707, but it is usually misrepresented and misunderstood. There is no good reason for this because the facts are clear from the vivid and intelligent accounts of many of those involved. It is a fascinating and astonishing story. Paul Scott, who has researched these contemporary accounts for many years, explains how the Union came about, largely in the words of major participants who either made the Union or resisted it.

P.H. Scott is a former diplomat who has written extensively on Scottish literature, history and politics, and who has made a special study of the Union question, both in its origins and its consequences.
