(p.1) Introduction The Scottish Economy in Historical Context
The Transformation of Scotland

G. C. Peden

Edinburgh University Press

This introductory chapter sets out the purpose of the book, which is to fill a substantial gap in the literature and to encourage further research in Scottish economic history. An evaluation of the historical antecedents of the Scottish economy is timely, given the restoration of a Scottish parliament in 1999 and opportunities associated with devolution. The factors in Scottish economic development are discussed and an overview of the subsequent chapters is presented.

Keywords:   Scotland, economic history, economic development, Scottish economy
