Manchester, United Kingdom: Manchester University Press, 2001. 354pp looks unused. : Beyond Jacobitism Towards Industrialisation. Whatley argues that the Union of 1707 was vital for Scottish success, but in ways which have hitherto been overlooked. He proposes that the central place of Jacobitism in the historiography of the period should be revised. Far from being an ‘uninflammable people’, collectively ordinary Scots posed enormous problems for the authorities at both Westminster and in town and country. The book contests received wisdom on issues such as the role of the Kirk and other agencies for inculcating order, and argues that the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries in Scotland were years of upheaval and deep social conflict in both the Highlands and Lowlands, where commercialism and later the market economy revolutionised social relationships. The period surrounding the Radical War in 1820 is identified as a watershed in Scottish history, almost making but also breaking the Scottish working class. Comprehensive in its coverage, the book is based not only on an exhaustive reading of secondary material but also incorporates a wealth of new evidence from previously little-used or unused primary sources.. Paperback. Fine. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
