'... highly entertaining...' Times Literary Supplement 'A welcome reassessment of one of the earliest and quirkiest careers in travel literature, and of a man with much extraordinary insight to offer amid the bile.' The Scotsman '... an attractive and valuable book.' Journal of the Royal Asiatic Society 'The text is clearly written and well-organized. It carefully reconstructs the fascinating story of Lithgow's peregrinations, and the scholarly apparatus that supplements this story will be of great help to readers interested in Lithgow and in crosscultural texts from early modern Britain.' Renaissance Quarterly 'It is to Bosworth's credit that in this informative and well-crafted volume he charts this intricate world with assurance and authority.' Journal of British Studies 'Clifford Bosworth's study of the writings of the Scottish traveller William Lithgow constitutes an extremely useful addition to the recent corpus of scholarship focused on the relationship between East and West in the early modern era. ... An Intrepid Scot is written with admirable clarity, while retaining the necessary detail and depth of scholarship to do justice to the subject mater and should be of great interest to anyone engaged in the study of early modern interactions between east and west.'
