Between 1641 and 1649, for the first time before 1922, Ireland was recognised by the international community as an independent nation. Even though the Cromwellian conquest of 1649 made short work of Catholic Ireland's revolution, it nevertheless ranks as one of the most successful revolts of early modern history. This interdisciplinary collection of essays examines how the tumultuous events of the 1640s and 1650s transformed the course of Ireland's history. The contributors consider throughout why Restoration Ireland after 1660 was such a different world from that of the Stuart era. Was the change due simply to the passage of 20 years; or to war in the 1640s followed by English occupation in the 1650s? During these decades did active forces of change outweigh those of continuity in shaping Irish society, identities, warfare, religious beliefs, and economic and tenurial practices? These essays seek to set Ireland in its wider European and British contexts.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'... an impressive and ambitious collection ... it provides up to date narrative and stimulus for further reflection'. Bullan
"...by encouraging and/or assembling so much scholarship that deals productively with the complex issues of the Irish mid-century, she [Ohlmeyer] (and her contributors) have created the sense of a vital and comprehensive subject very far removed from Carlyle's impenetrable swamp. It is a commendable achievement." Albion
"A short review cannot do justice to these contributions. They all add to our knowledge of Ireland at this time, and there is no doubt that they, along with other contributions to this book, will become the foundation of all future work on the Irish civil war and its outcome." Canadian Journal of History
