Concentrates on Defoe's relations with Scotland and with various Scotsmen to focus on the political relationship with England when the representative bodies of both countries were moving toward a union that would transfer the parliament to London. Deals with his immersion in Scottish politics as the agent of Robert Harley, the English Home Secretary; his focus on the Jacobite movement; his connection with Irish affairs and his confrontation with Jonathon Swift over Wood's Halfpence; and his interest in military biography as evidenced in his accounts of two junior officers and of the Duke of Marlborough and Charles XII of Sweden.
