Summary
"This study focuses on one of Ireland's wealthiest regions in the early modern period, South Munster, and traces its fortunes over two hundred years. The region's strengths were its agricultural resources and its prime Atlantic location, and the rise of the city of Cork from insignificance to international importance was both critical in the exploitation of this wealth and symbolic of a new commercial order. Cork's wholesale hinterland embraced much of Kerry, Waterford and Co. Cork itself, and the study examines the whole of the region." "The primary purpose of the book is to reconstruct the framework of a pre-modern regional society in a way never before attempted for Ireland, and to demonstrate how that society worked. Many of its findings have national implications, and the book will also be of comparative interest to students of pre-industrial European and colonial American history."--BOOK JACKET
