Essentially a series of intelligent and perceptive essays on different aspects of the Anglo-Scottish Union, based on the premise that only an understanding of the past can clarify the present when "the main question . . . [is] how to prevent a total disintegration of the relationship between the two peoples." The author, a young Scottish historian, argues for a radical reordering of society.
