Nation and Province in the First British Empire: Scotland and the Americas, 1600-1800
Bucknell University Press, 2001 - History - 292 pages
For more than four decades, historians have devoted ever-increasing attention to the affinities that linked Scotland with the American colonies in the eighteenth century. This volume moves beyond earlier discussion in two ways. For one, the geographical coverage of the papers extends beyond the territories that became the United States to include what became Canada, The Caribbean, and even Africa. For another, the volume attends not only those areas in which Scotland was closely linked to the Americas, but also to those where it was not.
