This chapter takes a comparative look at the patterns of conquest and colonialism in the British Isles and in North America. It provides necessary background on Scotland's historic relationship with its more powerful neighbor to the south, on the crown's efforts to subjugate the Celtic borderlands, and how colonial strategies developed in dealing with tribal peoples in Britain were subsequently applied in dealing with tribal peoples in North America. It also considers the varied responses of the clans and tribes, and how, for example, the Campbells and Mohegans found alliance with the English as a path to power.

Keywords:   Celtic borderlands, conquest, colonialism, resistance, accommodation
