The first historical examinations of this region did little to dispel this image . Citation: Daniel Trifan.

The first historical examinations of this region did little to dispel this image, beginning with those of George Ridpath in the eighteenth century. After 1597 and the confirmation of James as heir to the English throne, James proceeded to do exactly that.

The surnames, and their associated obligations of kinship and alliance, provided a framework for the exercise of power within the Middle March, as elsewhere. The socio-political structure of the march was also subject to external influences: the effects of the Reformation, socio-economic change and, of course, Anglo-Scottish relations.

The Scottish Borders experienced dramatic change on James VI's succession to the throne of England: where characteristically hostile Anglo-Scottish relations had encouraged cross-border raiding, James was to prosecute a newly consistent pacification of crime in the region. This volume explores his actions in the Middle March, the shires of Roxburgh, Peebles and Selkirk, by examining governmental processes and structures of power there both before and after Union. It suggests that James utilised existing networks of authority, with the help of a largely co-operative Borders elite that remained in place after 1603; kinship and alliance helped to form these networks, and government is shown to have used their associated obligations. The book thus overturns the traditional view of a semi-anarchic region beyond the control of government in Edinburgh. Building on this account of the transformation wrought by Union, the volume also places the Middle March in the context of Scottish state formation and the intensification of administrative activity and political control, particularly within James' determined efforts to suppress feuding. It therefore tests wider claims made by historians about the changing nature of governance and judicial processes in early modern Scotland as a whole, and within a nascent "Great Britain".
