Book description

This volume offers fresh perspectives on the political, military, religious, social, cultural, intellectual, economic, and environmental history of early modern Ireland and situates these discussions in global and comparative contexts. The opening chapters focus on 'Politics' and 'Religion and War' and offer a chronological narrative, informed by the re-interpretation of new archives. The remaining chapters are more thematic, with chapters on 'Society', 'Culture', and 'Economy and Environment', and often respond to wider methodologies and historiographical debates. Interdisciplinary cross-pollination - between, on the one hand, history and, on the other, disciplines like anthropology, archaeology, geography, computer science, literature and gender and environmental studies - informs many of the chapters. The volume offers a range of new departures by a generation of scholars who explain in a refreshing and accessible manner how and why people acted as they did in the transformative and tumultuous years between 1550 and 1730.

Reviews

‘The new approaches and topics set out here will certainly … [attract] a new generation of historians while revitalizing the field and those already working in it, ensuring the continued growth of interest in early modern Ireland. Each of the essays, too numerous to consider individually here, set out larger developments and themes in clear and accessible language suitable for undergraduates and those new to the subject … while offering novel and nuanced interpretations sure to reinvigorate advanced scholars.’
