New Publication in ISHR Studies in Scottish History Series: Regency in 16th Century Scotland

9781843839804The Institute of Scottish Historical Research is delighted to announce the publication by Boydell & Brewer of Amy Blakeway’s Regency in Sixteenth-Century Scotland, the latest volume in the St Andrews Studies in Scottish History series. The book is a pioneering study of how the Scots coped with the succession of underage monarchs from James V to Mary Queen of Scots and James VI and examines in unprecedented detail the effectiveness of the regents who governed on their behalf.

Two further volumes in the series will appear later this year: Melissa Pollock’s Scotland, England and France after the Loss of Normandy, 1204-1296, that explores the implications of the loss of Normandy to the cross-border and cross-channel kinship networks of Scotland’s Anglo-Norman nobility, and an innovative collection of essays edited by Elizabeth Ewan and Janay Nugent on Children and Youth in Premodern Scotland.

Full details can be found on the publisher’s website:
