This book brings to life the Scottish Presbyterian community forced into Dutch exile after 1660 and triumphantly repatriated as a result of the ‘Glorious’ Revolution. By examining its interaction with other elements of Dutch society and the attitude of the British authorities towards it, the author concludes that it remained a distinct part of the Scots expatriate population, unable, because of its circumstances, to integrate fully into Dutch life.
