The Scottish Migration To Ulster In The Reign Of James I by M. Perceval-Maxwell was first published in 1973, yet it continues to be one of the most significant works of scholarship on the 'plantation' of Ulster. This book describes in detail the initial establishment of settlement in Ireland's northern province over a comparitively short space of time, that is from 1603 to 1625. Dr Perceval-Maxwell examines the society that produced the Scottish settlers, describes the conditions that they encountered when they arrived in Ireland, and explains what effect the Scottish migration had in both Ireland and Scotland. Short biographies of the principal planters are included and also maps, showing patterns of settlement. This edition includes an introduction written by Dr Perceval-Maxwell which examines more recent research on this period and shows that most of this scholarship has supplemented rather than challenged his original work.
