    This challenging look at the origins of the United Kingdom focuses on the years preceding the Union of 1707, setting the political history of Scotland and England against the backdrop of war in Europe and the emergence of imperialism. Against common assumptions about the importance of economic troubles in the Scots' acceptance of terms, Fry argues that they were able to exploit English ignorance of Scotland and steer the settlement in their own favour.
