Description - Integration and Enlightenment by Bruce Lenman
This book charts one of the most peaceful periods in Scotland's turbulent history. It describes Scottish society from the defeat of the Jacobites at Culloden in 1746, to the passing of the Scottish Reform Bill in 1832. Economically, the period saw tremendous change in the lowlands. Culturally, it was a period which saw the rise of some of Britain's greatest thinkers, and a flourishing of imaginative writers. Politically, however, Scotland was dominated by its integration into Great Britain and the ties of patronage and dependency set up by the great leaders of the country, the two Dundases and Henry Cockburn. This book should be of use to general readers interested in the Scottish Enlightenment, the "Ancien Regime" and Scotland's history, and to school pupils and undergraduates of history.
