The Transactions of the Royal Historical Society offers readers an annual collection of major articles representing some of the best historical research by some of the world's most distinguished historians. Also available as a journal, volume ten of the sixth series takes the theme 'the British-Irish Union of 1801' as its main focus and includes the Presidential Address on 'Britain and the World in the Eighteenth Century: Reshaping the Empire' by P. J. Marshall, 'Court cases and Legal Arguments in England c.1066-1166' by John Hudson, 'The Union in European Context' by William Doyle, 'Alliances and Misalliances in the politics of the Union' by L. M. Cullen, 'Ireland, India and the Empire, 1780-1914' by C. A. Bayley and 'The Divergence of England: The Growth of the English Economy in the Seventeenth and Eighteenth Centuries' by E. A. Wrigley.


'A serious academic read then, well written, with a lot to ponder on.'
The Times Higher Education Supplement

'This collection of essays provides historians of Ireland with plenty of scope for reflections and the royal Historical society is to be congratulated on devoting a volume of its proceedings to the Irish Act of Union.'
Irish Economic and Social History Journal

Because of Lovereading I have broadened my reading horizons with some really great books that I probably would never have chosen myself.

Susan Walsh

Lovereading always comes up with great suggestions and has introduced me to enjoyable books and new authors to discover.

Gaynor Passmore

With literary excellence, humour and drama, Lovereading's got value and is a real stress-calmer!

Siobhan McDowell

Lovereading is like booking a holiday, you don't know what it will be like and it is a whole new experience.

Sue Burton

It gives a chance to read about new titles, invites comments from all kinds of readers and is run by such a nice bunch of book lovers.

Joy Bosworth

It's the first site that I visit when deciding on the next set of books to buy. A particular treat is being able to download an extract.

Tessa Olson

Lovereading is a wonderful way to expand my literary horizons, discover inspiring authors & get the chance to read new novels first. #loveit
