The Declaration of Arbroath is one of the most remarkable documents of medieval Europe. Signed by 51 Scottish nobles, it confirmed Scotland’s status as an independent sovereign state with the right to use military action if unjustly attacked. This is the first book-length study to examine the origins of the Declaration and the ideas upon which it drew, while tracing the rise of its mythic status in Scotland and exploring its impact upon revolutionary America.
