Robertson, John (ed.):
A Union for Empire: Political Thought and the British Union of 1707 - Paperback

ISBN: 9780521029889

[ED: Softcover], [PU: CAMBRIDGE UNIV PR], Essays by leading historians which explore the political significance of the Anglo-Scottish Union of 1707. This volume of essays explores the intellectual context of the Anglo-Scottish Union of 1707. Challenging the received view of the Union as a simple political job, it argues instead that the Union was a landmark in the history of political thought. It investigates the ideas of union, universal monarchy and empire current in Europe and Britain before 1707, focuses on the issues of sovereignty at the centre of the Union debate itself and concludes by studying the aftermath of the debate in eighteenth-century discussions of Britain's relations to Ireland and the North American Colonies. Underlining the vitality of Scottish intellectual life before the Enlightenment, the volume also gives unprecedented attention to the English view of the Union, to its European setting and to its consequences for the subsequent understanding of the British Empire. Review quote: "This is an important collection of essays, and one which should be read by every serious student of the Union and its consequences. Its appeal should be wider than that, and deservedly so, as it adds yet another contribution to the study of Scottish history in what is properly its British, European, and Atlantic context." Christopher Whatley, Books in Review "It is a useful collection, worth having if only for Pocock's splendid concluding piece, which is worth a review all by itself." Scotia "...a fine collection..." Brian P. Levack, Albion "A Union for Empire offers a wealth of fine full generalizations on a wide range of subjects related to a major historical event.
