Cathcart A (2010) The Statutes of Iona: the archipelagic context. Journal of British Studies, 49 (1), pp. 4-27. https://doi.org/10.1086/644533
This article places James VI's Highland policy, and more specifically the Statutes of Iona, within a 'British' or archipelagic context which, I argue, is crucial to understanding the statutes in terms of Stuart policy toward its more remote regions. By placing the statues in a wider context, I am to highlight how an appreciation of the archipelagic situation can inform understanding of the Scottish situation.
