What I’ve been reading and not reading (due to travel)

 Colin Kidd, Union and Unionisms: Political Thought in Scotland, 1500-2000.  A very good and well-written look at Scottish views on the Union over the centuries.  Explained conceptually in a nice way, not just a catalog, and tied to religion as well. Thomas Bartlett, Ireland: A History.  One of the best one-volume introductions to Irish history.
