Hamish Scott has published extensively on eighteenth-century international relations, government and enlightened absolutism, and on the early modern nobility. He taught for many years at the University of St Andrews, and is now attached to the University of Glasgow. A Fellow of the British Academy and of the Royal Society of Edinburgh, he is currently completing a major study, Forming Aristocracy: The reconfiguration of the European Nobility, which is to be published by Oxford University Press.
the very real achievement the two volumes represent ... will be
valuable indeed as introductions, for those, students and
established scholars alike, seeking to find their conceptual and
bibliographical footing in unfamiliar terrain. * Spencer J.
Weinreich, Journal of Jesuit Studies *
Scott is greatly to be congratulated for looking at the wider European world. This is most valuable. The inclusion of the Ottoman Empire, with Gabor Agostons characteristically perceptive piece on the Empire and Europe, is also most welcome ... a fascinating collection, and one that richly deserves attention. * Jeremy Black, University of Exeter, European Review of History *
