Describing the last period of Scotland's existence as an independent kingdom, the major focus of this volume is the events and consequences of the Reformation, that crucial episode which ushered in tremendous spiritual and secular change. Professor Wormald shows how Scotland's rulers, all formidably powerful (with the exception of Mary) and highly cultured, governed a society whose economic and social bonds were still in many ways 'medieval'.
