Editorial Reviews

'important ... Almost all the chapters deserve careful reading and the volume should not be seen merely as a monument to the work of scholars in increasing our understanding over the last twenty years. It should also stimulate continued debate about the Union and the dynamic of the relationsbetween Britain and Ireland of which we are very directly the inheritors.'Allen Warren, History No. 253, June 1993
