Editorial Reviews

`scholarly study ... Using an impressive array of original evidence he skilfully goes on to prove that Tipperary the microcosm can be used both to prove and disprove historical theories applied to the wider macrocosm of Ireland. Thomas Power's study of eighteenth-century Tipperary is clearly avital contribution to Irish historiography, both in terms of local and wider national implications. He combines thorough research, rational analysis and persuasive argument, effectively proposing that research on a fragment can clarify the picture of the whole.'Martyn J. Powell, University of Wales, Aberystwyth, British Journal of Eighteenth Century Studies, Vol. 19
