""Professor Walker's Legal History of Scotland will be published in seven volumes. It is the only attempt yet made to write a chronological narrative account of the development of the Scottish legal system from early times on a substantial scale, with extensive reference to original sources. That development is wholly different from that of the English legal system. Attention is given at all stages to sources and legal literature, the influences of other legal systems, the courts and procedure, the lawyers, the roles of Parliament and the Privy Council, and to public, criminal and private law, both substantive and procedural.Volume IV deals with the years between 1603, when the Scots lost their resident king, and 1707, when they lost their separate parliament. The intervening years were violent and contentious, and witnessed resentment at attempts to enforce episcopacy on the Kirk, which gave rise to armed resistance to the king, and ultimately civil war, then Scotland's subjugation by Cromwell and enforced union with England, the Restoration, the resistance of the Covenanters and the reaction against James VII which culminated in the Revolution and finally the unpopular Union.Const
