Discusses the reactions of seventeenth and eighteenth-century writers of Irish history to the unprecedented turbulence of the age.
From the PublisherA most useful and stimulating collection, which contributes substantially to the history of early modern Irish political discourse. JOURNAL OF IRISH & SCOTTISH STUDIES (A) provocative and intelligent collection. (...) The contributions offered here - all engaging, some entertaining - comprise an argument for flinging open all of the doors and windows in the Pantheon of Irish history. IRISH STUDIES REVIEW (Readers will) be well rewarded (...) with a deeper understanding not only of the Irish past but also of the myriad ways in which that past was put to use by writers of various political and religious stripes at a time when Ireland was making the transition to the modern world.
