Confederate Ireland, 1642-1649: A Constitutional and Political Analysis

Front Cover
Four Courts Press, 1999 - History - 295 pages
0 Reviews
This book examines political and constitutional developments in confederate Ireland from the formation of embryonic governmental institutions in 1642 until the signing of the 'Second Ormond Peace' in 1649. This book challenges certain misconceptions common to most previously published research on the nature and operation of the confederate association. These misconceptions originate in a failure to accurately classify the different social and cultural groups who formed that alliance, leading to a misunderstanding of the relationship between the confederates and, more importantly, of what originally united, and ultimately divided them.
