    In this study of Scotland in the 19th century - from Waterloo to the outbreak of the First World War - Michael Fry focuses on politics, culture and the survival of distinct forms of Scottishness that both derived from an independent past and laid the foundations for the reassertion of nationality. Drawing on the experiences of individual Scottish men and women rather than theories and statistics, he discusses the characteristics that have assured Scotland's remarkable survival through three centuries of Union with another nation.
