Review Quotes
"British Interventions in Early Modern Ireland reflects the dynamic state of the field--the real and rich legacy of Aidan Clarke. It is certainly essential reading for scholars and graduate students interested in early modern Ireland." - Sean Farrell, Northern Illinois University

Review of the hardback: '... these very different essays testify to the vitality and sophistication of Irish historical studies of the seventeenth century.' Journal of Ecclesiastical History
'... rich and important ...' Reviews in History
"The fortuitous integration of the essays is a strength paralleled by the book's overall writerly grace. Frankly, it is good to see several fine historians restore the narrative mode to its proper palce, especially since so many of the contributors are writers who command a flued and elegant prose, totally free of jargon and untroubled by current fasions proliferating among so many scholars." - B.R. Siegfried, Brigham Young University

Long Description
In this book leading historians challenge traditional views about the British conquest and colonization of Ireland during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. They reveal the contradictions, disappointments and failures, which attended the efforts of English and Scottish colonists. Notably, the British became increasingly aware of the need not to destroy the resources they originally sought to exploit.
Main Description
This book offers a new perspective on Irish History from the late sixteenth to the end of the seventeenth century. Many of the chapters address, from national, regional and individual perspectives, the key events, institutions and processes that transformed the history of early modern Ireland. Others probe the nature of Anglo-Irish relations, Ireland's ambiguous constitutional position during these years and the problems inherent in running a multiple monarchy. Where appropriate, the volume adopts a wider comparative approach and casts fresh light on a range of historiographical debates, including the 'New British Histories', the nature of the 'General Crisis' and the question of Irish exceptionalism. Collectively, these essays challenge and complicate traditional paradigms of conquest and colonization. By examining the inconclusive and contradictory manner in which English and Scottish colonists established themselves in the island, it casts further light on all of its inhabitants during the early modern period.
