This chapter contains a thematic discussion of the project of the Union, set in the context of different types of union experienced in the ‘composite monarchies’ of early modern Europe and the theoretical approaches advocated in the work of the Scottish apologist Sir Thomas Craig. It highlights the clash of ideas between the concepts of ‘perfect’ and ‘imperfect’ union and again analyses the reasons for the Commons’ resistance to the project.

Keywords: Union with Scotland; the Union; Sir Thomas Craig; composite monarchy; nationalism
