The Union of the Crowns in 1603 is the cornerstone of the modern British state, but relations between England and Scotland did not always run smoothly in the following centuries. This volume examines how the neighbouring British nations regarded each other from 1603 to 1900. Why did this unionlast when many others in Europe fell apart? How close did it come to unravelling? What were the strengths and tricks that preserved it? As aggregations of individuals, as economies, or as systems of law and politics, how did England and Scotland mesh? Political, economic, legal, intellectual andliterary historians examine the first three centuries of Union, including the reception of James in the south, the Civil Wars, the background to Parliamentary Union in 1707, the spoils of Empire, and the Victorian climax. Together with its companion Anglo-Scottish Relations, from 1900 to Devolutionand Beyond (0-19-726331-3), the volume provides a vivid account of two nations which have often differed, remained very distinct, yet achieved endurance in European terms
T C Smout is at Emeritus Professor of Scottish History, School of History, University of St Andrews, and Fellow of the British Academy.
