This volume offers the first in-depth analysis of seventeenth-century Irish political thought and culture. Within it, distinguished international scholars investigate on the leading political theorists of the day and draw attention to previously neglected writers, Irish Catholics in particular, and overlooked political treatises. Major topics are addressed; the constitutional relationship between England and Ireland and the extent to which Ireland was a kingdom or colony; Ireland's intellectual links with Catholic Europe and the influence of counter-reformation ideology; the place of Irish political thought in its wider 'three kingdoms', imperial and Atlantic contexts. The dramatic impact on political thought of the civil wars of the 1640s and 1688-91 is also examined. The volume as a whole provides an interesting perspective on the formation of early modern Irish identity.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Review of the hardback: '... an important and fascinating foray into the much-neglected field of seventeenth-century Irish political thought and culture.' Notes and Queries
Review of the hardback: 'Like all the best books, this volume leaves us thirsting for more. It is a very significant contribution to the field, both empirically and methodologically, and deserves a wide readership.' Parliamentary History
"A fascinating and important book." History: Reviews of New Books
"Political thought in seventeenth-century Ireland is largely the story of complaint against, and resistance to, the changing forms of English/British authority. This volume and its contributors usefully explore the many permutations of that theme." H-NET Reviews
"...this volume...is thought-provoking, wide-ranging, and intelligently conceived as a starting point for further discussion of Irish political thought in this period." Sixteenth Century Journal
