    Research output: Book/ReportBook

    Abstract

    This monograph, published by University College Dublin Press and based on my PhD thesis (2007), provides the first examination of landed decline, and survival, in the six counties that became Northern Ireland after partition. It examines economic, political and cultural factors and traces the importance of networks of influence locally, nationally and globally. It was extremely well-received by the scholarly community.
