The Plantation of Ulster book. Although, as Jonathan Bardon himself acknowledges, trying to keep on top of the twists and turns of events in the 1640's does require a particularly clear head.

The Plantation of Ulster was the most ambitious scheme of colonisation ever attempted in modern Europe, and one of the largest European migrations of the period.

Bardon is in no doubt about the brutality of Ulster’s colonisation. Examples abound of the destruction in the 17th century of Catholic churches, friaries and shrines. It might raise hackles, but it is undoubtedly a book that can be read to advantage by anyone seeking to understand better the making and unmaking of the United Kingdom.

The Plantation of Ulster was the most ambitious scheme of colonisation ever attempted in modern Europe, and one of the largest European migrations of the period. It was a pivotal episode in Irish history, sending shock waves reverberating down the centuries. In this vivid account, the author punctures some generally held assumptions: despite slaughter and famine, the province was not completely depopulated as was often asserted at the time; the native Irish were not deliberately given the most infertile land; some of the most energetic planters were Catholic; and the Catholic Church there emerged stronger than before. Above all, natives and newcomers fused to a greater degree than is widely believed: apart from recent immigrants, nearly all Ulster people today have the blood of both Planter and Gael flowing in their veins. Nevertheless, memories of dispossession and massacre, etched into the folk memory, were to ignite explosive outbreaks of intercommunal conflict down to our own time. The Plantation was also the beginning of a far greater exodus to North America. Subsequently, descendants of Ulster planters crossed the Atlantic in their tens of thousands to play a central role in shaping the United States of America.

Ulster is the historical name for the northeastern region of Ireland that generally is now used as a synonym for "Northern Ireland" although it is actually not identical (Donegal, for instance, was in Ulster & now is part of the Republic of Ireland). While Dublin was controlled by the English long before James I took the throne of England from Elizabeth I, and Elizabeth had commenced the military campaign to conquer the North in the last years of her reign, it was only during James's reign that the campaign achieved success, largely through a scorched earth tactic of destroying crops and livestock and starving the Irish natives then slaughtering them. James than awarded most of the land in Ulster to English and Scottish "undertakers" as a way of expanding his empire and rewarding them for service and loyalty at a time when there was no longer any land in England to bestow and not enough gold and silver to compensate them otherwise.

This book is a powerful and comprehensive account of the military, geopolitical, internecine, religious and human aspects of that program, referred to historically as the Plantation of Ulster, the term used to refer to this "planting" of the English and Scottish in Ireland, accompanied by the forcible displacement of the Irish natives from their established farms and homes, much like the displacement of native Americans in the push west, or at best the conversion of their land ownership to tenancies. (The term was also used occasionally to refer to planting similar persons in the Americans.)

It continues into the 1640's when Cromwell murderously put down a rebellion, and into the 1690's when William of Orange did the same to the alliance among the Irish, the French and ironically James II, a Catholic descendant of James I who was trying to retake the throne. It concludes with a review of the legacy of the program for Ireland, America and so on.

It is unsparing in describing the savagery and atrocities committed in this imperial belligerence, but dispassionate in its tone, which makes it all the more blunt and effective. But it also explores, as I said, the geopolitical and religious context in which this war and occupation occurred. And it pays particular attention to the internecine tensions among the constituencies on both sides. It lays out, in what may be excessive detail for the average reader, the land policies and transfers that implemented the plantation; although I concede they are essential to its implementation, toward the end I became a little tired of reading about the latest round that occurred after the latest military campaign.

It will make excellent reading for anyone of an Irish or Scotch-Irish heritage in the US so that you will see the world your ancestors who came to America hailed from. It would be good background reading for a historically-minded traveler in the North as well.

The Plantation Of Ulster is just as I had hoped it would be - a cogent, well documented story told by an author who is well versed in the history of Ireland, with all its intricacy's. Jonathan Bardon turns this story of a very difficult and often deadly period into a gripping story that an be understood and appreciated by all - even one who is not knowledgeable about Irish history and unfamiliar with the Irish place names and names of the people. It is a riveting read.

If you're a bit more interested than your average casual reader, the detail in this book will be fine, but it might be a bit overwhelming for the more casual reader.

I was amazed at how readable this great book is, considering the volume of subtle details woven together like the finest linen. Included in these pages are global political intrigue, the harsh reality of the human toll of ethnic warfare, the cost of that warfare to all the nations of Eastern and Western Europe and the heart wrenching destruction of Native Irish families and cultural foundations. What a story! What a story!

An interesting overview of a controversial time, place and people. as I read I wished I had a better understanding of the spatial relationship of this part of the world. Several times I found myself wanting a map of Ulster as i read.
