About this book

Bankhurst examines how news regarding the violent struggle to control the borderlands of British North America between 1740 and 1760 resonated among communities in Ireland with familial links to the colonies. This work considers how intense Irish press coverage and American fundraising drives in Ireland produced empathy among Ulster Presbyterians.

Reviews

Winner of the 2014 Donald Murphy Prize for Distinguished First Books, in association with the American Conference for Irish Studies (ACIS)

“Ulster Presbyterians and the Scots Irish diaspora, 1750-1764 remains a stimulating study, and one which will be of interest not only to historians of migration or Ulster Presbyterianism but also to scholars of Ireland and empire.” (Jonathan Jeffrey Wright, Studia Hibernica, Vol. 41, 2014)
