This book is the first detailed study of the English settlements in southwest Ireland. The author argues that the migration was, rather than a qcolonialq process, a natural movement from southwest England to a pleasant neighboring region. He concentrates on the Munster plantation: the nature of the land confiscation in the 1580s, the settlers involved, the number of families established, and the ways in which the English both modified the province and were changed by its local conditions.This book is the first detailed study of the English settlements in southwest Ireland.
