eBook - 2013
Rate this:
The institutions and people who shaped the contemporary understanding of the "Land Question" (the creation under English rule of a class of poor Irish tenants with English and Scottish landlords) in Irish history, discussed by a wide range of Irish academics. The history of Ireland is inextricably linked with Irish people's relationship with the land. In this book, based on extensive research and investigation, the authors examine some of the key figures in Irish agrarian agitation and change. Looking at the Land League, the Knights of the Plough, and the perception and reality of the Irish Landlords, this is an important book which makes a significant contribution to our understanding of the nature of the "land question" in Irish history.
