About this title


"...fascinating...Cram-full of primary sources, skillfully organized, this is a valuable work of social history. It is also an entertaining, compelling first-hand account of the Irish Ascendancy through four centuries that, without romanticizing its subject, nevertheless realizes vigorously its unique flavour."--House & Garden.
