First published in 1992, this is a comprehensive biography of Henry Dundas, 1st Viscount Melville (1742–1811), and his son Robert, 2nd Viscount (1771–1851) who ruled Scotland from the 1770s to the 1830s. Though satisfactory to Scots at the time, that period of government was later dubbed 'the Dundas Despotism'. In this study, Michael Fry overturns the traditional view that the Dundases presided over a corrupt and authoritarian regime.
