This is a seminal work of art! Written at such a changing time in Ireland, it gives a sense of what state the country was in during this time. I was especially interested in the section dealing with the system of penology in Ireland during this period. Facinating to get a rational account of what the system of imprisonment was like and how the changes in the running of the system were beginning to kick in due to Imperial government legislation. The effect of central goverment on all aspects of social and economic life was brought to the fore statistically and thereby added to an image of the new nineteenth-century power of governmentality.
