    In this new history of Scotland, from the 'dismaying aftermath of the Union in 1707' to the 'comradeship-in-arms' of Scots and the English in the wars following the French Revolution, Fry departs from the usual socio-economic approach. In five sections he examines economy, society and the 'margins' (of poverty, women and Gaeldom), but pays equal attention to political and cultural history, arguing that these show us why Scotland's integration into Britain was never complete.
