About the Book


Although clanship as the basis of Highland society was virtually destroyed after the Battle of Culloden, clans remain the single most distinctive feature of Scottish history. Compiled and edited by the Secretary and Deputy Secretary of the Standing Council of Scottish Chiefs (and published with the approval of this influential organization), this book provides the histories and heraldic details of more than 300 of the most famous clans and families of Scotland. Beginning chapters provide information on the history of the clan system, the law of the clan, tartan and Highland dress, and heraldry. Beautifully illustrated with tartans, crests, and coats of arms, with appendices listing important dates in history, Scottish monarchs, and Scottish names associated with clans and families as well as information of genealogy. Color & b&w illus.
