A series of books published as teaching and learning materials for the Dundee/Open University Distance Learning Course in Modern Scottish History which contain the fruits of up-to-date research by Scotland's most distinguished historians.

Volumes 1 and 2 contain 13 essays each covering all aspects of political, economic, social, religious and cultural life from 1707 to the present day. Volumes 3 and 4 contain 24 and 22 articles respectively published over a wide period dealing with more specialist topics which enable the reader to gain a knowledge of the era in question. Volume 5 consists of 145 annotated documents spanning the period which provide valuable insights into key events and contemporary attitudes.
