This history of the Highland families or clans who remained loyal to the Hanoverian government during the Jacobite rebellions is one of the most insightful and impressive studies ever done on the period in the late 17th and 18th centuries, when families -- father and son, brother and brother -- decided which way to turn in the struggle between the exiled Stuarts and the government established after 1688. It is a reflective, analytical, and incredibly well researched study of what happens between and within families torn by complex issues of self-interest, loyalty to constituted authority, religious obedience, and anger between competing local families. This study begins with a consideration of the type of politics which existed in the Highlands and then looks at the Lords of the Isles, the Stewart monarchy, royal lieutenants, the Clan Gregor, and the divine right of kings, as well as the new order emerging by the early 19th century. While the book is essential to anyone studying the Jacobite period, it has extensive materials on the following families: Cameron, Campbell, Forbes, Fraser, Gordon, Graham, Grant, Hamilton, MacDonald, MacGregor, MacIan, Mackay, Mackenzie, Mackintosh, MacLean, MacLeod, MacPherson, Menzies, Munro, Murray, Robertson, Ross, Stewart, and Sutherland.
