One of the most helpful books I have found on this subject is _Anglo-Scottish
Relations_.  It reprinted the actual documents and letters from this period
and shows clearly how John Balliol won the throne from the Contendor.  I found
it in the library at WCU.  Following is the complete bibliographical entry
from it:
Stones, E. L. G., ed., Anglo-Scottish Relations, 1174-1328; Some Selected
Documents.  Translated by  E. L. G. Stone.  1965; reprint ed.; Oxford:
Clarendon Press, 1970. 

     Stone  was the Professor of Medieval History at the University of
Glasgow.  He has collected and translated many Latin and French texts of
import to this period dealing with the relations between England and Scotland.

WOnderful book!  I wish it were still in print so I could own a copy.
