Thornton, Tim (1998) Scotland and the Isle of Man, c.1400-1625 : noble power and royal presumption in the Northern Irish Sea province. Scottish Historical Review, 77 (1). pp. 1-30. ISSN 0036-9241

Although Scottish during much of the medieval era, the Isle of Man was under British control during the late medieval and early modern historical period. However, the association between England and the island was not close. London did not exert much influence over Manx political affairs. The fact that the island functioned largely as a self-governing entity supports the theory espoused by various scholars that the British authorities adopted a gradual, decentralized approach to governing newly acquired territories.
