Review:

This is a welcome book on an important topic curiously understudied: the actions and mental worlds of elites from Ireland who went into exile after the wars of the 1640s. RENAISSANCE QUARTERLY A refreshing, culturally aware review of prominent figures. (A)n engaging study. HISTORY Always entertaining. ... Mark Williams has rescued the continental endeavours of leading Irish royalists from oblivion. His greatest achievement is that he has sharpened our understanding of British royalist ideology during the revolutionary years. THE IRISH TIMES (A) elegantly crafted first book. ... Mark Williams has cast light on a neglected aspect of the Civil Wars and his book is a significant contribution to our understanding not just of this important period of our history but also of the 17th century as a whole. LITERARY REVIEW The author offers compelling evidence of an exiled Irish Royalist community where commitment to the Stuart cause was shaped less by a clearly defined ideology than it was by pragmatic and complex alliances as courtiers battled to adapt and remain relevant in an ever-changing environment. In doing so, Williams has raised more questions that need to be asked of English royalism during this period. AMERICAN HISTORICAL REVIEW
