The scholarship of the influential historian, Steven G. Ellis, provides inspiration and coherence to this collection of original essays assembled in his honour.

Explorations of the history of Tudor Ireland form the core of the volume, but essays on late medieval Ireland, the Tudor far north and on the Netherlands and Iceland in later times stretch the chronological and geographic boundaries of early modern Ireland. For a full list of contents, see button at right.
