Regarded as the most celebrated Irish political pamphlet published before 1801, William Molyneux’s Case of Ireland, stated (1698) was written to demonstrate that English statutes did not become of force in Ireland until they had been re-enacted by the Irish parliament. For all its fame, the Case’s mass of legal precedents and seemingly contradictory arguments make it a work that requires elucidation for the modern reader.
This new edition presents a critical text, based on the manuscripts of the Case in the Trinity College Dublin library, together with explanatory notes, and a re-examination of the historical background and the sources on which Molyneux drew.
