This volume honours the work of Allan I. Macinnes, who in a distinguished career has made a substantial contribution to the study of early modern Scottish, British and Irish history. Subjects associated with his work are the revolutions of the seventeenth century, Gaelic society, the makings of the Anglo-Scottish Union, the development of Jacobitism, and Scottish involvement in the British Empire. Throughout, Macinnes has promoted a thoroughly international rather than insular approach to the study of Scotland. The volume brings together a prominent cast of scholars and honours Macinnes's approach of investigating how Scotland fitted into the wider world. It looks at the Scots' historic relationship with their neighbours, allies, trading partners and diaspora: it explores the complex interaction of the peoples of the British Isles; it also takes as its focus the conflicts which shaped Scotland's engagement with Britain and Europe in the seventeenth century; and it likewise engages with Scottish participation in parliamentary union, overseas empire and intellectual culture - topics which have structured how Scotland is understood on the eve of the modern era. From intellectual and cultural exchange to political and military upheaval, the collection will be key reading for anyone interested in the antecedents to Scotland's current international standing.
