Drawing on his encyclopedic knowledge of Scottish history, William Ferguson traces the origin of Scottish national identity, and people's perceptions of it, from earliest times to the present day.

From the Scottish Origin Legend, expressed in the works of the medieval chroniclers, to the ideas of contemporary historians, Ferguson provides a guide through -- to name but a few -- Gaelic kingship, George Buchanan, the Reformation, the Enlightenment, James Macpherson, Goths versus Gaels, and George Chalmers.
