Scottish Kingship by Michael Brown
Book DescriptionKingship was the defining feature of medieval Scotland. The monarchy provided the Scots with a focus for national identity and gave Scotland a recognised status in Europe. The fourteenth and fifteenth centuries formed a unique era for Scottish kingship, in which kings achieved new status and power, while facing fresh challenges to their authority and legitimacy. The essays in this volume focus on individual reigns and particular themes as a means to create a synthesis of research from the last quarter century, and give fresh insights into the exercise of kingship in a late medieval realm. In doing so, the book pays tribute to Norman Macdougall, formerly of the Department of Scottish History at the University of St Andrews. Macdougall's two landmark books, "James III" (1982) and "James IV" (1989, 2nd edn 1997), revolutionised the understanding of late medieval Scottish monarchy, and demonstrated how the detailed study of the crown throws light on all aspects of the history of medieval realms. This collection, written by the leading historians of medieval Scotland, including many of Macdougall's students, brings kingship and the exercise of power to the fore again.

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, 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.
