I found this book especially interesting because even with in depth study about King James, it seemed always to be about his reign as an English king.

I found this book especially interesting because even with in depth study about King James, it seemed always to be about his reign as an English king. We know that he ruled over a united kingdom, but I don't recall reading anything about him from a Scot's viewpoint after he left Scotland. I'm glad I read this because, for me, it filled in some gaps and explained how he developed from a child prince to a conscientious king (and then on to a king led astray.

This study is a concerted attempt by a group of ten scholars of the reign, drawn from three different disciplines, to shed light on its politics and government, viewed through a series of perspectives. They include the royal court, which is analyzed separately through its literature, architecture and ceremony; noble factionalism; relations with England, James VI's paymaster; a revised model of tensions between church and state.

MICHAEL LYNCH AND SIXTEENTH-CENTURY SCOTLAND Julian Goodare & Alasdair A. . MacDonald. The present collection of essays is designed to open new windows onto the study of sixteenth-century Scotland. Michael’s own contribution to the book was a detailed and wide-ranging essay that influentially continued the Innes tradition of reinterpreting the Reformation. One of Michael’s own chapters in The Reign of James VI concerned court culture during the reign of this sovereign; it therefore continued an interest that had first developed in connection with Mary queen of Scots, and other essays focused on regnal periods have since followed.

Examining one of the most enigmatic reigns in Scottish history, this account analyzes James VI as literary author, correspondent, husband, and universal king during his rule from 1567 to 1625. The study is drawn from three different disciplines and scholars to detail aspects of politics and government, including the royal court; noble factionalism; and the relationship of the government with various localities including the Highlands, the Borders, and the Southwest. The analysis also offers a series of revisions to accepted views of the reign.
