When Scotland Ruled the World

Michael Lamont Stewart Fry

$16.99

Hardback
In 1750, Scotland emerged from half a century of civil strife. Its parliament was subsumed by Westminster, and the English were vigilant for any sign of Jacobite rebellion. Despite this, Scotland was at the beginning of a period of resurgence that was to last two centuries. This fascinating look at of the Golden Age of Scottish history includes: the great names of the " democratic intellect, " including Adam Smith and David Hume; writers, such as Robert Burns, Walter Scott, and Robert Louis Stevenson; scientists and inventors, among them Watson and Watt; as well as engineers of the Empire; missionaries and explorers; and pioneers of surgery and medicine. An illuminating account of the outstanding achievements of this proud nation.

- Publisher Lamont celebrates the people who made Scotland great during the two golden centuries. He covers the scientific and literary giants who have made their mark not simply on British history but on the history of the world.
