Graziers, Land Reform and Political Conflict in Ireland provides an analysis of large grazing farmers (commonly called graziers or ranchers) in nineteenth and early twentieth century Ireland. The book examines their origins, characteristics, and important but controversial role in Irish society, which led to conflict with the surrounding peasantry (what may be termed the ranching question). The first part of the chapter considers the themes of the book, the sources used and the influences in writing it. It also draws points of comparison with two other scholarly works which focused on the graziers. The second part considers what additional themes and perspectives would be adopted if the study was to be done again.
