This ambitious book offers an alert and lively examination, not of Anglo-Scottish writing as a whole, but of the idea and representation of unionism in a series of specific authors or case-studies.... Even those who disagree with its larger claims about narrative, or with its particular interpretations, will find this a book stuffed with good and provocative quotes and ideas. * Studies In Scottish Literature * Rivka Swenson's Essential Scots offers a welcome development on the notions of conciliation, inclusive feeling, and constellations as a means of national cultural analysis. * Eighteenth-Century Fiction * Swenson carries the reader into new critical territory through a series of deft readings. The meaning of Scottishness - understood as a kind of kernel or essence, however empty or malleable - changes over time as it does different work in the hands of different authors and at different historical moments. A sophisticated, thought-provoking addition. Indeed, Essential Scots serves notice that this sub-field has clearly come of age. -- Evan Gottlieb, Associate Professor of English, Oregon State University; author of <i>Romantic Globalism: British Literature and Modern World Order, 1750-1830</i>
