The Plantation of Ulster : Ideology and Practice Paperback / softback
Edited by Dr. Micheal O Siochru, Eamonn Ciardha
Part of the Studies in Early Modern Irish History series
This book is the first major academic study of the Ulster Plantation in over twenty-five years, newly available in paperback.
The pivotal importance of the plantation to the shared histories of Ireland and Britain would be difficult to overstate.
It helped secure the English conquest of Ireland, and dramatically transformed Ireland's physical, political, religious and cultural landscapes.
The legacies of the plantation are still contested to this day, but as the peace process evolves and the violence of the previous forty years begins to recede into memory, vital space has been created for a timely reappraisal of the plantation process and its role in identity formation within Ulster, Ireland and beyond.
This collection of essays by leading scholars in the field offers an important redress in terms of the previous coverage of the plantations, moving away from an exclusive colonial perspective, to include the native Catholic experience, and in so doing will hopefully stimulate further research into this crucial episode in Irish and British history. -- .
