The Fall of the Irish Landlords, 1840-1925

To write a book on the fall of the Irish landlords from the 1840s to the 1920s. This book will combine both chronological and topical treatments of such major problems as the impact of the Famine on the landlords, the conflict between "Catholic democracy" and "Protestant oligarchy", the agricultural depression of the late 1870s, the Home Rule crisis of the 1880s, the land war, the contribution of the landlords to Irish Unionism, landlord indebtedness and the sale of estates and finally, the social and political upheavals associated with the advent of armed militants-north and south-and the involvement of the landlords in both guerrilla and then civil war.
