Written by award-winning Scottish historian James Hunter, this groundbreaking and definitive account reveals how the Highlands and Islands of Scotland have evolved from a centre of European significance to a Scottish outpost. Never before has the history of the region been recounted so comprehensively and in so much fascinating, often moving, detail. But this book is not simply the story of humanity's millennia-long involvement with one of the world's most spectacular localities. It is also a major contribution to present-day debate about how Scotland, and Britain, should be organised.
