This is a study of relations between landlords and tenants in Ireland between the great famine and the land war. Based on a remarkably wide range of primary sources, most notably collections of estate papers, it is a comprehensive and wide-ranging analysis, in which W.E. Vaughan explores evictions, rents, tenant right, estate management, agrarian outrages, and tenants' resistance to landlords. Dr Vaughan questions many assumptions about landlord-tenant relations that have previously been uncritically accepted.

Review quote

'nothing as thorough as this masterly analysis of estate management between the Famine and the Land War has appeared before' Times Literary Supplement This is a scholarly, sober treatment of landlords in the second half of the 19th century ... It draws on a huge bibliography and a very impressive and extensive array of estate papers and official reports, so that it is a work of deep scholarship ... It this is an example of revisionism, it is a worthy example, particularly in terms of bringing fresh material to light and a new insight to bear. The Irish Times This work is not a simple restatement of the revisionist position and thus should be of interest to Irish historians. Vaughan provides a broad and comprehensive description and analysis of the mid-Victorian Irish land system. The Historian his work...has been essential reading for anyone interested in the subject. For what is primarily a complex work of social and economic history of the first importance, this book is compellingly readable and superbly written. Bullan an authoritative study of landlord tenant relations in Ireland from the Great Famine to the Land War...Impressive evidence, both quantitative and non-quantitative, is brought to bear on a large number of aspects of the Irish land question...Vaughan has provided the basis for stimulating debate for years to come. he wanted to be provocative and has succeeded admirably. In addition, he has plugged a number of holes in our knowledge of the Irish land question. On the wgole, as one can expect of a historian of Vaughan's calibre, thuis is a first-rate piece of scholarship. Albion the first work to look deeply as well as broadly at the theory and practice of estate life as it was lived between 1850 and 1880. English Historical Review

Back cover copy

This is a study of relations between landlords and tenants in Ireland between the great famine and the land war. Based on a remarkably wide range of primary sources, most notably collections of estate papers, it is a comprehensive and wide-ranging analysis, in which W. E. Vaughan explores evictions, rents, tenant right, estate management, agrarian outrages, and tenants' resistance to landlords. Dr Vaughan questions many assumptions about landlord-tenant relations that hitherto have been uncritically accepted. In place of the conventional image of predatory and allpowerful landlords, and oppressed, impoverished tenants, Dr Vaughan presents a scholarly and nuanced picture of complex mutual accommodation, thus revising the traditional view of land relations in nineteenth-century Ireland.
