'Irish Rebellion is a measured, well-researched study, that profitably inserts the Irish debates about the 1798 rebellion into the wider British cultural and political response to the aftermath of the French Revolution. It is groundbreaking on the crucial role played by Musgrave's Rebellions, a seminal volume that influenced British perceptions across the whole of the nineteenth century, impacting on the Catholic Emancipation and Disestablishment debates, and finally waning in appeal only after the centenary commemoration of 1898.' - Professor Kevin Whelan, Director of the Keough-Naughton Centre of the University of Notre Dame in Dublin.
'Stuart Andrews offers a nineteenth-century perspective on the conflict by looking at the paper warfare that followed. His previous work on British Unitarianism is impressive, and here it ensures that he is able to employ a much broader perspective than most when looking at Irish politics. - Martyn Powell, The Historical Association's Annual Bulletin of Historical Literature.
