T his book on the growth of Quakerism in Ireland, specifically Dublin, offers a most interesting account of the spiritual, industrial and enterprising life of Friends there. It is the first study of Dublin Quakers, covering their contacts, growth, business, social, spiritual and philanthropic life. Richard S Harrison is a recognised authority on Irish Quaker history and this is a well-researched and documented work, covering the period from Quaker beginnings in 1650 to 1900.
