The crisis that befell Ireland in the 1640s has always fascinated historians. This volume of essays presents cutting-edge research on various aspects of the Irish wars, notably regionalism, the nature of English interventions, popular politics and the problems of allegiance, authority and legitimacy in church and state. The chapters include studies of the earl of Cork in Munster, the earl of Clanricarde in Connacht and Lord Montgomery in Ulster, as well as the Confederate Catholic engagement with popular politics. The role of the marquess of Ormond, the Irish Parliament and the Church of Ireland are also examined in new ways, and the volume ends with a fresh look at the war of words between Oliver Cromwell and the Catholic Church. Ireland in crisis presents a very different view of the period that challenges existing assumptions. It will appeal to lecturers, students and the general reader.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'All of the articles are of a very high standard and individually and collectively enhance our understanding of the period 1641–50 in early modern Irish history as part of MUP’s series. For the historian of political institutions, parliaments, and representative assemblies, there is much to learn and take for a greater understanding and awareness of important developments in Ireland during such a turbulent period. This is well worth a read.'Parliaments, Estates & Representation - .
