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
