Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document This historical inquiry examines the critical scholarship surrounding the Irish land question that was considered to be at the heart of the larger political problem of nationalist disaffection, the so-called "Irish Question." How landlord-tenant relations were to be mediated was thought to be key to Irish unrest. Beginning in the 1860s, scholars recognized that the Irish might have a unique communal land system with shared rights that was different from the imposed English ideals of private property and contract law. Such scholarship had political implications and was closely tied to the nationalist movement. Later studies became more quantitative and econometric. More recent studies focus on subjective aspects giving prominence to "place making" and attachments to land.
