A very welcome and useful work, with much to recommend it. * EIGHTEENTH-CENTURY SCOTLAND *
A welcome addition to the meagre literature on Restoration Scotland. * ALBION *
Convincing and timely.... Undoubtedly an important book in the field of Restoration studies. Jackson makes her arguments briskly, clearly and succinctly. Besides its obvious interest for students of Scottish history, historians of England will find numerous intriguing points of comparison with Scottish political and ecclesiological ideas. * PARLIAMENTARY HISTORY *
[This] volume not only recovers an obscure story and relates it with nuance and balance, it is also rich and suggestive in its exploration of a range of related subjects.... Jackson's work will now become the standard work on Restoration Scotland and should also act as a point of departure for researchers on a wider front. * H-NET ALBION *
Well-defined, closely-argued.. The author has illuminated a poorly-understood period.. An important and instructive work. * SEVENTEENTH-CENTURY NEWS *
This book, firmly grounded on extensive primary research, triumphantly succeeds in its aim of reconstructing the diverse religious and political languages and `shard sensibilities' of Scotland in the reigns of Charles II and James VII and II. * THE SEVENTEENTH CENTURY *
Succeeds in providing a well contextualised and finely nuanced account of Restoration Scottish politics and political thought. It reveals the world of the Scottish political establishment as much more interesting and complex than has often been portrayed, far less isolated and extraordinary than has sometimes appeared. * SCOTTISH ARCHIVES *
