Description - Essays on the Nobility of Medieval Scotland by K.J. Stringer

For many years historians have ignored the men and families whose territorial power and local leadership made them a cardinal force in medieval Scotland. They were, as the historian K.B. McFarlane put it, 'the victims of a strong prejudice in favour of the Crown': there was an unwillingness to discuss individual barons save from the viewpoint of the king, and there was also a strong tendency to malign the nobility for a chronic turbulence and a natural antagonism towards the monarchy. The Scottish Baronial Research Group was founded in 1969 to redress this balance. The contents of this book are made up of a number of essays which were presented as papers at the group's annual conference in 1985, and demonstrate that in the space of a short time, much serious research had taken place. Together they bring us closer to a 'history' of the nobility of medieval Scotland and as such this book is a major landmark in Scottish medieval history.
