The Jacobite Rebellions

by James Pringle Thomson

Within the compass of 120 pages it was impossible for me to cover every event in this period. The "Forty-Five" itself would have provided enough material to fill a volume of double the size. I have therefore concentrated on the four events which seemed to me most important--namely, the Darien scheme, the Union of the Crowns, and the risings of 1715 and 1745. For the rest, I have endeavoured to illustrate, however briefly, the religious, social, and industrial activities of the time.

Author of the Day

J.J. White
Apart from being able to surf (the ocean, not the web) and singing and whistling at the same time, J.J. White is an amazing writer who knows how to draw his readers in and keep them at the edge of their seats. His latest book, Deviant Acts, is no exception and deals with a ex-soldier/heroin addict who finds himself in a situation where he needs to play the hero. As our author of the day, White reveals how relatives of his inspired this book and why his friends call his wife "Saint Pam."
