Overview

Political Discourse in Seventeenth- and Eighteenth-Century Ireland by D. G. Boyce, R. Eccleshall, V. Geoghegan

This collection explores the political thinking of a fundamental period of Irish history. It moves from the turmoil of the 17th century, through the years of the Protestant ascendancy, to the revolutionary events at the end of the 18th century. Light is thrown on a huge cast of forgotten or never known figures, including royal officials, lawyers, clergymen, landowners, and popular writers.
