Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Governing Gaeldom: The Scottish Highlands and the Restoration State, 1660-1688 contains the table of contents, acknowledgements, a list of tables, figures, Illustrations and appendices, a list of abbreviations, notes and maps. Caithness, Sutherland, Ross, Cromarty, Inverness and Argyll, the six sheriffdoms usually described by contemporaries as indisputably 'Highland', form the core of the book. In addition, there were a number of other shires which contemporaries did not regard as truly 'Highland', but were nevertheless acknowledged to include peripheral zones displaying 'Highland' characteristics.
