The royal Stuarts : a history of the family that shaped Britain by Allan Massie( Book )
16 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and held by 1,180 libraries worldwide
"The Royal Stuarts ruled for over 300 years in Scotland and for a century as the Royal Family of Britain and Ireland. They were leading actors in the foremost political dramas of British history - the Scottish Wars of Independence, the Union of the Crowns, the English Civil War and the Restoration - and remain the most controversial and divisive of royal families. Drawing on the accounts of historians past and present, novels and plays, Allan Massie tells the family's full story, from the salt marshes of Brittany to the thrones of Scotland and England, and then eventual exile. A book which gets beyond the received generalisations, The Royal Stuarts takes us deep into the lives of figures like Mary Queen of Scots, Charles I and Bonnie Prince Charlie, uncovering a family of strong affections and fierce rivalries, the brave and capable, the weak and foolish."--Publisher's description

Caligula by Allan Massie( Book )
17 editions published between 2003 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 211 libraries worldwide
"Gaius Caligula is known as the mad emperor, the one who made his horse a consul. He was violent, vicious and incestuous, a murderer who was himself murdered after a reign of only four years. Yet, when first he succeeded the aged recluse Tiberius, the Romans were delighted. For a few month he even seemed generous and enlightened." "So what went wrong? Or did it? Perhaps the conventional image of Caligula is distorted and he was simply a victim of circumstance and rumour. Who better, then, to tell the true story of his short life than the Roman nobleman, Lucius, who knew Caligula as a child and remained close to him until the end (and was even more intimate with not only one of Caligula's sisters but also his older brother)?" "Through Lucius's worldly-wise eyes, the young emperor emerges as a real man, not a figure of myth. Conspiracies, poisonings and infidelities might pepper his tale, but the full picture of Caligula's life and times is a complex, multi-coloured one."--BOOK JACKET

The thistle and the rose : six centuries of love and hate between the Scots and the English by Allan Massie( Book )
7 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 164 libraries worldwide
"This compelling investigation is peopled with some of the greatest figures in history, from Bonnie Prince Charlie and Butcher Cumberland to Dr Johnson and James Boswell, and Adam Smith to William Pitt. The nineteenth century saw Glasgow become the second city of the British Empire and Queen Victoria launch a cult of Scotland, especially of the Highlands. The two world wars brought the countries ever closer, only for the long story of devolution to begin within a generation. Margaret Thatcher's role in this growing disillusionment is analysed for the first time. In revealing how the two nations have seen and influenced each other, noted writer and commentator Allan Massie questions whether this historic and powerful union can survive. It is an inspiring narrative that will unsettle received wisdom on this most fascinating, turbulent and romantic relationship."
