This pioneering exploration of the phenomenon of the composite state in Eighteenth-century Europe employs a comparative approach to sustain the case for the inclusion of Ireland within this interpretative framework. Written by acknowledged experts, the collection uniquely combines the findings of new research on Ireland with broader syntheses of some of the major composite states of Europe. With accounts of the pays d'etat of Burgundy (Julian Swann) and Languedoc (Stephen J. Miller) in France, on the Hungarian diet and Austria (Orsolya Szakaly) and Poland-Lithuania (Richard Butterwick), and of Irish confessional (James Kelly, David Hayton), financial (C.I. McGrath), improving (Andrew Sneddon) and security (Neal Garnham) legislation, as well as a reflective introduction and conclusion setting the essays in their wider historical and interpretative context, this collection both amplifies understanding of the nature of the European composite state and of the deliberations of the Irish parliament. This book will be of particular interest to scholars and students of eighteenth-century European and Irish history.
