It is also the first full length historical treatment of 1798 in County Wicklow and makes a case for reconsidering the current Wexford oriented historiography of the south Leinster rebellion. Fresh account is also taken of the social, economic and political origins of the Rebellion in the region. The book provides a detailed examnination for every part of Wicklow in the advent of Rebellion with discussion of issues such as the operation of the governement's counter-insurgency strategy and the growth of native ultra-loyalism in the county. The course of the rising in Wicklow is charted dated by day from May 1798 to the underrated guerilla campaign waged by General Joseph Holt's rump forces until the winter of 1798. The book fully explores the interaction of that county's United Irishmen with their comrades in Wexford, Dublin, Kildare and Meath, and one of its appendices contains a list of almost 1,000 identified Wicklow United Irishmen.
