Dr. James Guilfoyle published a book chapter on “Ireland, Mercantilism, and the Navigation Acts, 1660-86” in the volume entitled Taxation, Politics, and Protest in Ireland, 1662-2016 edited by Douglas Kanter and Patrick Walsh (Palgrave Macmillan, 2019).

The volume “examines the politics of taxation in Ireland between the seventeenth and twenty-first centuries. Combining political, economic, and policy history, it contributes to a growing interdisciplinary literature on public finance, while also providing context for the ongoing debate on taxation and austerity in post-Celtic Tiger Ireland. Taxation, Politics, and Protest in Ireland illuminates a neglected aspect of Irish history, and will be of interest to scholars, policymakers, and members of the public who wish to understand a subject that is central to the modern Irish experience.”
