Dedication
First words
Preface to the 1998 Reprint -- I began this book, which was first published in 1992, by arguing that while much of Ireland in the 1790s has been scrutinized and rescrutinized, it nonetheless remained a largely undiscovered country.
A Note on the Title -- Irish readers (and others) will recognize the phrase 'the men of no property' as a quotation from the journals of Theobald Wolfe Tone.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0312213395, Paperback)

The paperback edition of the extremely popular The Men of No Property is a study of the popular dimensions of Irish radicalism in the age of the French revolution. It focuses on the lower-class secret society, the Defenders, and the more familiar face of radicalism in this period, the Society of United Irishmen. Particular attention is paid to the vigorous traditions of street protest in eighteenth-century Dublin. The picture which emerges is of a revolutionary movement which was both more radical in its rhetoric and objectives and more popular in its social base than has previously been allowed.
