The New Higher History series offers a full-colour, topic-based approach to the revised Higher History syllabus. Covering all of the main issues within each topic area, this series includes investigative techniques, use of evidence and a variety of activities to enable students to develop the necessary skills to tackle both essay-based and source-based questions successfully. This book investigates the political and economic changes in Scotland during this period, looking at: the constitutional, social and religious situation in 1689; causes of the worsening relationship with England, including the Navigation Acts, Darien scheme, foreign wars and famine; the arguments for and against Union with England, including religious and economic considerations and the accessibility of colonies; the issue of Scottish identity and the varied attitudes within Scotland toward Union; reasons why the Treaty of Union was passed; the impact of Union in Scotland and the role that the Union played in the development of Scottish identity.
