The catastrophic failure of the Company of Scotland to establish a colony at Darien in Central America in the 1690s led to significant loss of life and money and was a key issue in the negotiations that led to the Union of 1707. In this study of the Company of Scotland - now better known as the Darien Company - Douglas Watt offers a new perspective on the events that led to the creation of the United Kingdom.
