    Review quote
    "It's a book that seems more like a multi-volume history, so sweeping is it; yet lucid and captivating even in detailed areas... Fundamental to Lynch's approach is a sense of connection between now and then, however far back; he continuously shows how Scottish identity refashions its heroes and myths, yet clings to survival" -- Douglas Gifford "A monumental achievement" Times Literary Supplement "Breathtaking and absorbing" Scottish Field "Fascinating...it ought to be compulsory reading for all MPs, journalists and commentators before they were permitted to talk about European economic and political union" -- Tom Wilkie Independent
