English newsbooks and Irish rebellion, 1641-49

DAVID A. O'HARA

Between 1641 and 1649 Charles I experienced either civil war or insurrection in his three kingdoms. This book examines how English weekly newsbooks reported the insurrection to their readers, and how all parties in England used news from Ireland in a paper war that accompanied armed hostilities.

David A. O'Hara is lecturer in early modern English and Irish history in the department of history at U Colorado, Boulder, USA.
