This is the fourth volume of a distance-learning history of Scotland course running from January 1998. The successful completion of the course gives students the equivalent to Junior Honours/OU Level 3 and carries 60 SCOTCAT points. This book looks at modern Scottish history readings from 1850 to the present. The 26 major topics are covered in five books, designed for self-study and written to accompany the course. These volumes are: two tutorial volumes, two volumes of reprinted articles and essays, and a volume of documents. The first half of the course covers the period 1707 to 1850. Beginning with the Union of 1707 and Jacobitism, the course considers topics, including: industrialization, politics, religion, the environment, class, demography and culture, as well as looking at the differences between Highland and Lowland society and economy.

Whatley, I.D. Whyte and D.J. Withrington. The period 1850 to the present is covered in the second half of the course.
