Abstract: Book Description: This volume explores aspects of the political, social, cultural, economic and religious development of Scotland in the reign of King Alexander II (1214-49). It constitutes the first full-length, multi-author study of the king and his reign. The nine contributors to the volume explore issues as diverse as the historiography of the reign, Anglo-Scottish relations, Church- State relations, economy and international trade, law, aristocratic symbolism, urban development and the territorial expansion of the kingdom. This book, the first major study of a reign which saw the Scottish monarchy achieve its mastery of northern mainland Britain, is of great importance to historians of medieval Scotland and the wider British Isles. The book is illustrated with 24 colour and b/w photographs and 5 maps and plans. Show More Show Less
