This volume offers the first ever in-depth analysis of seventeenth-century Irish political thought and culture. Distinguished scholars shed new light on the leading political theorists of the day along with previously neglected writers and treatises. Major issues are addressed including the constitutional relationship between England and Ireland, Ireland's intellectual links with Catholic Europe, and the place of Irish political thought in its wider "three kingdoms," imperial and Atlantic contexts. The volume adds an important new dimension to our understanding of the formation of early modern Irish identity.
