The best book I've seen on Scottish dancing is _A Social History of Scottish Dance_ (George S. Emmerson, 1972; published by McGill). It covers everything from the earliest times to the present. It is a superb synthesis of the social history of Scotland with dance as its centre. The chapters on the Scotch Reel, Jig, Hornpipe, and Folk Jigs are particularly good.
