Book Description Constable, London, 1993. Trade Paperback. Book Condition: Mint. First Thus. This copy is in mint, unread condition, bright, white, tight and square, in illustrated card covers as issued. This is an excellent account of the demise of the landed gentry class in Ireland focussing on the period from the mid 19th century to the late 20th century. The "Ascendancy" class in Ireland in majority were Protestant upper-class owners of large estates, generally acquired during the British colonisation of Ireland. They retained strong connections with the British military, including during both world wars. A significant minority of the ascendancy were some Norman-Irish Catholic families who retained their lands by remaining loyal to the crown. The book is well-researched and well-written, and is unusual in telling two centuries of history through the eyes of an often misunderstood elite. Bence-Jones decribes the ascendancy families as strongly identifying themselves as Irish but also being staunch supporters of the monarchy and the union with Britain. This contrasts with a more common view in Ireland of the ascendancy being seen as purely "West British". The narrative moves from the glory days of the ascendancy, when they lived lavish lifestyles funded from land rents and dominated politics (prior to Catholic emancipation), to their gradual loss of position due to land reforms and the moves to Home Rule and eventual Irish independence. Lavishly illustrated throughout with photographs taken from private collections many published here for the first time. Ref RR6 Size: 328pp. Bookseller Inventory # 015020
