The 1798 Rebellion unleashed a paper war involving contemporary historians and pro-Establishment literary reviews. The debate re-ignited whenever Irish issues impacted on Westminster politics - as happened frequently throughout the 1800s. Irish Rebellion: Protestant Polemic 1798-1900 traces this paper warfare against the background of the Union, Catholic Emancipation, Young Ireland, Gladstone and the Fenians, Victoria's jubilees, the 1898 centenary and the South African War.
