James I by Michael Brown

Book Description

Whether as lawgiver, tyrant or matyr, James I has cast a long shadow over the history of Scotland. Conditioned by a childhood surrounded by the rivalries of the Stewart family, and by 18 years of enforced exile in England, he was to prove a king very different from his elderly and conservative forerunners. The author concludes that, despite the apparent power and glamour, James I's "golden age" had shallow roots: after a life of drastically swinging fortunes, James I was to meet his end in a violent coup, a victim of his own methods.

Flood by Michael Brown Flood, Hardback (September 2016)

What is it like to experience a flood? Michael Brown's house was underwater for several weeks during the inundation of the Somerset Levels. He decided to stay on through it, and he was amazed at the ensuing chain of events. This well-written series of highlights of Michael's diary are funny, observant, honest and unpredictable.

Irish Enlightenment by Michael Brown Irish Enlightenment, Hardback (May 2016)

Scotland and England produced well-known intellectuals during the Enlightenment, but Ireland's contribution to this revolution in Western thought has received less attention. Michael Brown shows that Ireland also had its Enlightenment, which for a brief time opened up the possibility of a tolerant society, despite a history of sectarian conflict.

Political Biography of John Toland by Michael Brown Political Biography of John Toland, Paperback (January 2016)

John Toland was notorious. A pamphleteer, a polemicist and a prankster of the first order, modern scholarship has struggled to position his writings within the debates of his day.
