Reviews

"... with an introduction and notes displaying exemplary scholarship, this edition of Beacon's work, the first since its original appearance, promises to expose to a new readership a text that sheds light on both the sixteenth-century debate over how to colonize Ireland and the more recent historiographical debate over how to interpret the texts that record this controversy. ... This excellent edition ... is a crucial contribution to the formation of an ideology of colonialism."
