Morton was undoubtedly the most important of the regents of the young James VI, yet there has not until now been a book-length study devoted to him. Dr Hewitt here uses primary documentary sources to give a detailed account of his administration. The narrative traces Morton's early career, his accession to the regency, his problems with the nobility, his dealings with the Church, his border policy, his relations with England and other powers, and the various aspects of his domestic policy. Morton was a man who lived in turbulent times: the book concludes with an account of the last fateful months of his life and his execution in June 1581.
