Britain, Denmark-Norway and the House of Stuart, 1603-1660: A Diplomatic and Military Analysis
Redressing the belief held until now that there was little or no diplomatic or political relationship between Scotland and Denmark-Norway, this book covers the period from the start of the British reign of James VI and I in 1603 to the restoration of Charles II in 1660. It follows the alliance through several challenging periods, including the ascension to the English throne of a Scottish king in 1603, the Scottish National Covenant in 1638, the English Civil War, and the Cromwellian period. By examining the complex issue of British identity within a multiple monarchy and by approaching the subject from the perspective of the House of Stuart, a better understanding of diplomatic links with Denmark-Norway emerges.
