Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Handsomely produced. The credentials of its authors can hardly be questioned: on the contrary, the team assembled here can fairly claim a great part of the credit for having laid the twentieth-century foundations for the study of Irish history in this period."—The Irish Review

"Like its predecessors, Volume IV is a handsome tome: printed and produced to the usual high standard of the Clarendon Pressit is a major work on eighteenth-century Irish history and the most comprehensive attempt at a large single-volume consideration of this vital period."—James Kelly, Parliamentary History
