Britain and Ireland, 900 - 1300 by Brendan Smith

Book Description

There is a growing interest in the history of relations between the English, Scottish, Welsh and Irish as the United Kingdom and Ireland begin to construct new political arrangements and to become more fully integrated into Europe. This book brings together work on how these relations developed between 900 and 1300, a period crucial for the formation of national identities. The conquest of England by the Normans and the subsequent growth in English power required the inhabitants of Britain and Ireland to reassess their dealings with each other. Old ties were broken and new ones formed. Economic change, the influence of chivalry, the transmission of literary motifs, and questions of aristocratic identity are among the topics tackled here by leading scholars from Britain, Ireland and North America. Little has been published hitherto on this subject, and the book marks a major contribution to a topic of lasting interest.

Books By Author Brendan Smith

Crisis and Survival in Late Medieval Ireland by Brendan Smith Crisis and Survival in Late Medieval Ireland, Hardback (June 2013)

This volume explores the ways in which the English settlers in Louth maintained their English identity in the face of plague and warfare, through the turbulent decades between 1330 and 1450.

Lords and Lordship in the British Isles in the Late Middle Ages by Brendan Smith Lords and Lordship in the British Isles in the Late Middle Ages, Hardback (June 2009)

It is well known that political, economic, and social power in the British Isles in the Middle Ages lay in the hands of a small group of lords. In his final book, the late Rees Davies explores the personalities of these magnates, the nature of their lordship, and the ways in which it was expressed in a diverse and divided region in this period.

Ireland and the English World in the Late Middle Ages by Brendan Smith Ireland and the English World in the Late Middle Ages, Hardback (April 2009)

This volume extends the 'British Isles' approach pioneered by Robin Frame and Rees Davies to the later middle ages. Through examination of issues such as frontier formation, colonial identities and connections with the wider world it explores whether this period saw the bonds between the British Isles weaken, strengthen, or simply alter.

Colonisation and Conquest in Medieval Ireland by Brendan Smith Colonisation and Conquest in Medieval Ireland, Paperback (June 2006)

An examination of the earliest English settlers in Ireland in the coastal area of present-day county Louth.
