- Detailed local studies of the violence
- Background articles on the Ulster Plantation, Protestantism and the broader 'Three Kingdoms' political setting
- Analysis of the place of 1641 in the Protestant sense of identity
- An examination of the Gaelic literary and continental contexts of the Ulster-Irish community
Ulster 1641: Aspects of the Rising is an accessible and important publication for those interested in early modern Europe, the development and relationship between religion and society in the 17th Century and also for anyone interested in Ireland's troubled past.
