Summary

Turning to a series of essays written by Hume in the late 1740s, this chapter moves from the scene of London and Westminster politics to a broader British and indeed Scottish perspective. This chapter shows that the Glorious Revolution and the Hanoverian Succession remained at the heart of British political debate even a half century later. Writing in the wake of the Jacobite rising of 1745, Hume concentrated on politics in his native Scotland, and in particular the Scottish version of Toryism, which, as he had stated in his earlier essays, was synonymous with Jacobitism.
