As historian and author Arthur Herman reveals, in the eighteenth and nineteenth centrues Scotland made crucial contributions to science, philosopy, literature, education, medicine, commerce and politics - contributions that have formed and nurtured the modern West ever since. This book is not just about Scotland: it is an exciting account of the origins of the modern world. No one who takes this incredible historical trek will ever view the Scots or the modern West - in the same way again. (pbk)
