About the Authors
  • This is the first complete modern edition of the political works of Andrew Fletcher (1655-1716), one of the most acute observers of the European political order of his time and an important forerunner of the Scottish Enlightenment. Famous for his opposition to the Union with England in 1707, he viewed the problems of his own country in the light of a much broader knowledge of European affairs. His writings illustrate the long influence of Machiavelli on European political thought, and illuminates the major themes of the Enlightenment.

    • First complete modern edition of political works of major Scottish thinker
    • Massive relevance to current Devolution debate: Andrew Marr (Independent, July 1997) proposed erection of statue to Fletcher outside new Scottish parliament!
    • Notes on text will make readers aware of the range of Fletcher's references and the sharpness of his observation
    • Editor's introduction drawing on new research into Fletcher's life to reveal the full extent of his interests
