    In 1820, the last armed uprising on British soil, intent on severing the Union and establishing a radical Scottish republic, ended in 85 trials for treason, executions, imprisonments and transportations. An incisive analysis of the Radical Rising and events leading up to it, this study also captures the desperation of the Scots, the heroism of the radical leaders and the savagery with which the movement was crushed by Lord Liverpool's government. First published in 1970. (Previously in Postscript as The Scottish Insurrection.)
