Until the advent of the Scottish Parliament and the devolved Scottish Government, the Scottish Office (the precursor to the Scotland Office) was a major UK government department dealing with most aspects of the domestic governance of Scotland, a position known as "administrative devolution". Since devolution its powers are limited to those relating to reserved matters that are not dealt with by other departments of HM Government and it, along with the Wales Office, was then absorbed into the Department for Constitutional Affairs (DCA), which in turn became the Ministry of Justice.

What do two former governors of Australia, Lord Macaulay's nephew and the owner of Scotland's finest salmon river have in common? They have all served their small nation as Scottish Secretary; some reluctantly and others with patriotic fervor. The Scottish Secretaries charts the trials and tribulations of the 39 men and one woman who have held the post since the position was resurrected by Salisbury in 1885. From humble beginnings as an ill-regarded offshoot of the Home Office, the department grew to become a mini-Whitehall by the 1920s. It was also an important wartime department in WWII and a testing ground for planning and social reforms during the white heat of the 1960s. But with the Scottish Parliament now established as the political centre of Scottish life, the re-christened Scotland Office is once again redundant. Drawing on first-hand accounts and contemporary correspondence, David Torrance paints vivid biographical portraits of those figures—many now completely forgotten—who controlled Scotland's political agenda from both the Regency charm of Dover House and the Art Deco surroundings of St Andrew's House.
