About this book

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.

Reviews

“This is an important and agenda-setting collection on a significant and long-neglected subject. From the Navigation Acts to the tax marches of the 1970s, the contributions to this ambitious and timely volume attest to the centrality of the ability to tax to the operational capacity of the state, and to the resistance and resentment it inevitably provoked.” (James Kelly, Cregan Professor of History, Dublin City University, Ireland)

“Kanter, Walsh, and their colleagues have produced a landmark collection of essays on both the high politics of Irish taxation and the popular reaction to it since the seventeenth century. This work gives convincing evidence for their contention that fiscal policy has affected not only the economy but also the state, national identity, and civic morality.” (James H. Murphy, Director of Irish Studies, Boston College, USA)
