Samuel Clark begins this essay by briefly reviewing the principal arguments of Social Origins of the Irish Land War, along with several earlier articles published on rural unrest in Ireland. Here attention is paid to the intellectual context in which Social Origins came to be written. The author then goes on to re-assess and elaborate on the book's arguments in the light of more recent literature. A third section of the chapter identifies some of the subjects not covered in the book. The chapter's final section discusses one of these uncovered subjects – the Ladies’ Land League – in some detail.
