A History of Women in Ireland, 1500-1800, Paperback / softback Book

A History of Women in Ireland, 1500-1800 Paperback / softback

Part of the Women And Men In History series


The first general survey of the history of women in early modern Ireland. Based on an impressive range of source material, it presents the results of original research into women's lives and experiences in Ireland from 1500 to 1800. This was a time of considerable change in Ireland as English colonisation, religious reform and urbanisation transformed society on the island. Gaelic society based on dynastic lordships and Brehon Law gave way to an anglicised and centralised form of government and an English legal system.
