(p.1) Introduction
The Government of Scotland 1560-1625

Oxford University Press

This book aims to put Scotland on the map for those interested in the history of European government, as well as provide materials for those interested in British history. Historians of England have found it useful to look beyond their own borders for the dynamics of early Stuart government, such as the interaction between the different kingdoms of the British Isles. The book also discusses the historiography of Scottish government which indicates some of the main approaches which scholars have taken to the subject. The book is divided into twelve chapters that deal with legitimacy, the parliament as a consultative body, law and legislation, rise of personal monarchy, the privy council, officers and departments, traditional local government, new powers in the localities, nobility, government and elites in the Highlands, government and people, and whether there was a Stewart revolution in government.

Keywords:   government, local government, privy council, elites, Highlands, parliament, legislation, personal monarchy, nobility
