Stewarts probably had more impact on British history than any
other single family. As medieval barons, monarchs and pretenders
to the thrones they had lost, they featured prominently in the
island's government, politics, arts and society for over 600 years.
This meticulously researched book by best-selling historian Stewart
Ross is the first full-length history of that illustrious family
for over a century. The long gallery of Stewarts is presented
with scholarship, wit, sympathy and vivid colour, giving new emphasis
to their passionate sexuality and sinister propensity for depression.
The result is a great story starring a startling collage of unforgettable
personalities and a book which, if lent, is unlikely to be returned.
