Politics and the Nation

This chapter discusses politics and other developments in Scotland after the Jacobite Rebellion of 1745. First, the impact of the rebellion in Scotland and the ways in which different sections of Scottish society responded to the Jacobite threat are examined. Scotland's loyalists, long overlooked by historians, are identified and placed alongside the Jacobites and the apathetic or frightened who comprised the Scottish political nation in 1745. The chapter then goes on to examine the consequences of the rebellion and in particular the sustained and broad-based campaign to subdue and transform the Jacobite clans of the Highlands. This campaign served to focus debates about the nature of Scottish society in general as well the position of the Highlands within Scotland and Britain. Commerce and commercial progress were identified even more strongly with loyalty to the Hanoverian Succession.
