Regions and rulers in Ireland, 1100-1650 : essays for Kenneth Nicholls( Book )

8 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For over thirty-five years much of the most original and most exciting research into the history of medieval and early modern Ireland has been the work of one scholar - Kenneth Nicholls, author of the classic Gaelic and Gaelicised Ireland in the Middle Ages. Nicholls has pioneered the study of Irish society from the time of the Anglo-Norman invasion to the Age of Plantations, through his many publications revolutionising understanding of Gaelic Ireland and Anglo-Ireland and of the lords and lineages that exercised power over the regions. This volume has been specially produced to mark his retirement from teaching in the Department of History, University College, Cork. It contains important new essays on Ireland between 1100 and 1650 written by some of his friends and colleagues."--BOOK JACKET
