William Robertson (1721-1793) was a leading historical figure of the eighteenth-century Enlightenment. He was one of the triumvirate of historians, along with David Hume and Edward Gibbon, who profoundly shaped the European consciousness. William Robertson and the Expansion of Empire contains contributions from a number of distinguished historians and literary scholars who explore aspects of Robertson's intellectual achievements. Particular attention is paid to Robertson's treatment of the theme of empire and European expansion.
