In this important study of political alignment, the author sets the scene by exploring the antecedents of the Reformation which had been carried through Scotland before Mary returned in 1561 from her childhood in France. The core of the book is a detailed analysis of the territorial, religious, familial, and other factors, which motivated the Queen's supporters and her opponents. The book provides a convincing explanation of the affiliations and alliances of the time, and brings out the underlying constancy of many families and individuals to certain basic principles, even when tactical considerations caused shifts between one grouping and another.
