Description - Scottish National Consciousness in the Age of James VI by Arthur H. Williamson

The non-institutionalized nature of Scottish society made it difficult for the Scots to produce a long and respectable history to vie with England's much-vaunted and impressive pedigree. The idea that the Scots seized on to define and validate their identity was that of the covenant with God - and this had profound and far-reaching results. This original and stimulating book provides a valuable contribution to the understanding of the processes of secularization in early modern Europe, and indicates the significant ways in which the Scottish experience differed from that of England. It therefore provides a useful corrective to an Anglocentric interpretation of 'Britain'.
