During the years between the 1638 revolution when Scotland signed the National Covenant and the 1707 Treaty of Union with England, the country witnessed warfare, civil strife, assassinations, judicial torture and terror, and sudden changes of regime. Dealing with key issues and events, and taking a partly biographical approach that focuses on the personal lives of some of the movers and shakers, David Ross brings alive the 'killing time' that saw the foundation of modern Scotland-in-Britain.
