About this product
- DescriptionWell-established ideas of monarchy, social hierarchy and hour were under pressure in a fast-changing world. Political, religious, social and ecomic circumstances were all in flux. The common ambition of every faction was the creation of a usable focus of governance. Thus plantations, the constitutional experiments of Wentworth in the 1630s, the Confederation of the 1640s, the republican 1650s and the royalist reaction of the latter part of the century can be seen t simply as episodes in colonial domination but as part of an on-going attempt to find a modus vivendi within Ireland, often compromised by external influences. This book is t simply a narrative history of politics in seventeenth-century Ireland. It is a social history of governance that, while dealing with the main political, religious and ecomic developments, has at its interpretative core the process of making a new society out of competing factions.
- Author BiographyProfessor Raymond Gillespie teaches in the Department of Modern History, National University of Ireland, Maynooth. He is the author of several academic books and papers on social change in early modern Ireland.
