State and Society in Early Modern Scotland

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

In writing this book I have been helped by numerous scholars. Dr Michael Braddick, Professor Keith Brown, Professor J. H. Burns, Dr David Caldwell, Dr Jane Dawson, Professor Maurice Lee Jr., Dr Alan R. MacDonald, and Dr Athol Murray all kindly read and commented on draft chapters. Special thanks are due to Professor Michael Lynch, who read the whole book.

Over the years my thoughts have been shaped by discussions with many other friends and colleagues. These include Professor Geoffrey Barrow, Dr Steve Boardman, Professor Richard Bonney, Professor Archie Duncan, Dr Alexander Grant, Dr Maureen Meikle, Professor Conrad Russell, Mr David Sellar, Dr Fiona Watson, Dr Jenny Wormald, and Dr Louise Yeoman. The published works of these scholars have set a high standard for me to emulate. None of them may be held responsible for the views expressed here, and any errors are also my own responsibility.

Chapter 8 was drafted while I was a visiting fellow in the School of Advanced Study, University of London. The facilities of the School, and of the Institute of Historical Research, were much appreciated. An early version of Chapter 4 formed part of my 1989 University of Edinburgh Ph.D. thesis. Papers based on early versions of Chapters 2 and 3 were presented to the Association of Scottish Historical Studies and to the Department of History, University of Aberdeen. Part of Chapter 5 was drafted outside the north gate of Faslane nuclear submarine base.

Oxford University Press has been an exemplary publisher. Tony Morris provided support and encouragement over several years of writing, Anne Gelling offered invaluable help and advice at a crucial moment, and she, Ruth Parr, and Sarah Ridgard have seen the book efficiently through the press.

The tradition whereby a male academic author thanks his wife for providing him with domestic support services is not yet dead, but I am not going to prolong its life; Jackie had more important things to do. However, her own studies in the social sciences have
