    Book details


First published in 1979 as a tribute to the late Professor J.C. Beckett, this volume of original essays on the history of 18th-century Ireland was conceived both as an exercise in revision, challenging accepted orthodoxies, and as an attempt to open up new areas of study in a period grown stale with competing cliches: the "penal era" for Catholic Ireland which was also the "golden age" of Protestant Ascendancy. As a collection, these essays may fairly be said to have inaugurated a new era in the writing of 18th-century Irish history, as well as launching the careers of a generation of young scholars, a number of whom have gone on to establish themselves as leading authorities in the period. 25 years on, the volume still stands as a landmark, the impact and freshness of the essays undiminished.

Review Text

  • By M. O. Hogartaigh on 11 November 2009

    Despite being published 30 years ago, this book retains its originality and freshness. All the essays are elegant and exciting. The book has stood the hardest test of history, that of time. No one interested in eighteenth-century Ireland should neglect to read it.
