Buckingham and Ireland, 1616-1628: A Study in Anglo-Irish Politics
This is a study of the interdependence and interaction of English and Irish politics in the context of the Elizabethan reconquest of Ireland, the union of the crowns of England, Scotland and Ireland in 1603, and thereafter the extension of English civility throughout Ireland with the aid of British colonization. The discoveries concerning the extent of Buckingham's covert activities are stunning, and the arguments concerning the manner in which the pretence of reform was frequently used as a cover for continued corruption are equally so. This work will give rise to a general revision of the character of the governments of St. John and Falkland, and of the circumstances leading to the appointment of Wentworth.
