James Kelly's Prelude to Union is a significant and important study which contributes to the debate on the political realities of the experiment commonly known as 'Grattan's parliament'. Through the use of original source material the author analyses the events surrounding the establishment of the parliament and discusses the Anglo-Irish relations of the period. James Kelly examines the impact of the parliament and breaks new ground in several important areas, particularly on the complex relationship between public opinion and elite politics in late eighteenth century Ireland. This is a pioneering work which will be of interest to historians of eighteenth and nineteenth century Ireland and Britain.
