This chapter is about how Scottish parliaments functioned politically. It is about what parliaments did – or, more precisely, about how political actors used parliaments to do things. The chapter provides a structural analysis of the types of things that people used parliament to do, and how it did them. The question behind much of the discussion is: What difference did it make, politically, for Scotland to have parliaments?
