Description
Information
Previously entitled 'Charles Edward Stuart: The Life And Times Of Bonnie Prince Charlie', this distinguished biography is the standard work on the man, the period and its significance in Scottish history.

David Daiches has brushed away the dust of legend that blurs the image of The Young Pretender. He makes clear how Charles Edward Stuart became the Bonnie Prince Charlie of legend and fold memory. Because this biography is based almost entirely on contemporary sources, he emerges directly from 18th century Europe with all its political and dynastic intrigue.

The new insights into familiar and unfamiliar events explain the irresistible and unwavering appeal that Bonnie Prince Charlie has exerted so widely and for so long.
