This is an auction for SCOTLAND'S EMPIRE 1600-1815 by T M Devine.

Axmazon.com reviews:

"SCOTLAND'S EMPIRE 1600-1815 is an account by Scotland's bestselling historian of Scotland's role in the world. The Scots had an enormous impact on the global development of the British Empire as emigrants, soldiers, merchants and colonial administrators. Scotland's Empire provides a comprehensive examination of their crucial role during the formative era of the long eighteenth century. The book ranges from the Americas to Australia and from the Caribbean islands to India. It explores in depth many key themes including the slave trade, the Scots on the colonial frontier, Highland soldiers, the saga of the Ulster Scots, the effect of the Scottish Enlightenment and the connection between empire and the economic revolution in Scotland itself."

"FIVE STARS!!! If you're Scottish or have Scottish ancestry this book is an essential part of the picture of who we all are. Neither jingoistic nor cynical, it explores the waves of emigration from Scotland that lapped out east and west from the 17th to the 19th centuries, and in doing so maps out millions of new stories, one for every person who left Scotland and settled elsewhere, while exploding several chest-beating myths along the way. Devine is justly acknowledged as Scotland's most eminent academic in his field. But, more than that, his work is helping to shape Scotland's own knowledge of itself as it moves from an uneasy partner within the Kingdom that is meant to be United, to something different. This book isn't just about the past but about the present and the future. Get hold of it if you want to be kept up to date."
