Alistair Moffat's The Borders: A history of the Borders from earliest times was published in Selkirk in 2002 by Deerpark Press, 464 pages in hardback. The book accompanies a UK television series of the same name.
Alexander Jeffrey, a solicitor in Jedburgh, wrote a history of the county which was published in two separate editions. An historical and descriptive account of Roxburghshire, from the most ancient to the present times (424 pages long) was published in Edinburgh by Fraser & Co. in 1836. His later 2-volume The history and antiquities in Roxburghshire and adjacent districts: from the most remote period to the present time was published between 1855 and 1864 by T.C. Jack. The 1864 edition is listed in the LDS Family History Library catalogue in microfilm format, so is hopefully available worldwide in LDS family history centres.
The Borders Book (see the Bibliography section) contains much information on Border history.

The border counties were for many centuries the battleground between Scotland and England. Largely as a result of this the reiving tradition arose, something which only really died out with the Union of the Crowns in 1603. For a comprehensive history of the reiving times, read George MacDonald Fraser's The Steel Bonnets: the story of the Anglo-Scottish Border Reivers, first published in 1971 and reprinted ever since.
