    Definitely a specialized interest book. But if you are interested in the Scot's fight to maintain their independence (pre 1707) or regain sovereignty (post 1707), this is a fascinating book. In constant conflict with it's southern neighbor, England, for more than 700 years, many of the Western World's very concepts of independence and self determination came out of Scotland's efforts be free.
