Book Announcement: Taxation, Politics, and Protest in Ireland, 1662–2016

Taxation, Politics, and Protest in Ireland, 1662–2016, edited by Douglas Kanter and Patrick Walsh (Palgrave Macmillan, 2019).

This book examines the politics of taxation in Ireland between the seventeenth and twenty-first centuries. Combining political, economic, and policy history, it contributes to a growing interdisciplinary literature on public finance, while also providing context for the ongoing debate on taxation and austerity in post-Celtic Tiger Ireland. Taxation, Politics, and Protest in Ireland illuminates a neglected aspect of Irish history, and will be of interest to scholars, policymakers, and members of the public who wish to understand a subject that is central to the modern Irish experience.
