The Dublin Paper War of 1786-1788

A Bibliographical and Critical Inquiry

By W. J. Mc Cormack

The long and acrimonious exchange of pamphlets, which surrounded publication of Richard Woodward's Present State of the Church ofIreland in December 1786 has attracted a good deal of comment from historians interested in the Whiteboys, resistance to tithes and interdenominational relations in Ireland. Emphasising the importance of theoretical reflexivity in critical practice, W.J> Mc Cormack goes beyonf commentary to establish a full and annotated list of the publications involved. His bibliographical research is carefully placed wihin a wider context of interpretation, drawing on Anglo-American linguistic philosophy, German critical theoty and Begriffsgeschichte, and the findings of fellow Irish researchers.
