BOOK - Ulster Transformed: Essays on Plantation and Print Culture c. 1590-1641
By R. J. Hunter
Published by Ulster Historical Foundation, Belfast

Hardcover...40.95 (C$)

R.J. Hunter was regarded as the 'doyen' of historians of early modern Ireland, a highly respected scholar, much loved by his students and fellow academics. Ulster Transformed: Essays on Plantation and Print Culture c. 1590-1641 brings together a selection of his more significant scholarly works which primarily reflect his interest in the Ulster Plantation and includes articles on the progress of urbanisation and the social and economic impacts of these momentous times.

Other essays are case studies of the Plantation in particular areas, through the exploration of the part played by key individuals, and involve a strong sense of material culture and the physicality of cultural engagement.

What is published in this volume is the nineteen essays of real substance that Robert produced over a 40 year period from 1964. They have been arranged thematically rather than chronologically and between them they cover seven counties in historic pre-partition Ulster with a cluster of articles on the print trade, focused on Dublin.

Ulster Transformed: Essays on Plantation and Print Culture c. 1590-1641 constitutes one of the five volumes in the R.J. Hunter collection. Other titles in this collection are:
  • Strabane Barony during the Ulster Plantation 1607-1641
  • The Ulster Plantation in Armagh and Cavan 1608-41
  • 'Men and Arms': The Ulster Settlers, c. 1630
  • The Ulster Port Books 1612-15
About the author, R. J. Hunter
    Robert John (Bob) Hunter was born in rural Meath in 1938 and was educated atWesleyCollegeandTrinityCollege,Dublin. After graduation in 1960, he began research on the Ulster Plantation in the counties ofArmaghand Cavan, 1608-41. This interest in thePlantation, and early modern Irish history generally, was to dominate his life. In 1963 he was appointed Assistant Lecturer in History atMageeCollege, thus beginning an association with the city ofDerrythat was to continue for the rest of his life. The creation of what was to become theUniversityofUlsteralso saw him teaching regularly in Coleraine. Through his meticulous research, he developed an encyclopedia knowledge of his subject, traversing such themes as the development of towns, the role of the English planters, the history of trade and migration and the intellectual and cultural life ofUlstermore generally. Though his untimely death in 2007 was to cut short his ambitions for further writing, he was nevertheless to leave behind more than thirty articles, essays, reviews, etc., which were the result of painstaking study conducted with a careful eye for detail and relevance.
