A Scots Parliament
This is an introduction to the history and workings of the institution at the heart of Scotland's government. In an accessible, informative Scots, James Robertson charts the development of the Parliament from its medieval origins, through its fully-fledged role under the Stewarts, to the Union with the English Parliament in 1707. From there the story moves to the modern campaigns for its reinstatement, resulting in the opening of the new Parliament in Edinburgh in 1999. The colourful events and characters of this long and fascinating history, with illustrations and extracts from the Acts passed over the centuries, are presented with the aim of both informing and entertaining."
