The Roots of English Colonialism in IrelandMontaño, JohnCambridge University Press2011<p>​This is a major new study of the cultural foundations of the Tudor plantations in Ireland and of early English imperialism more generally. John Patrick Montaño traces the roots of colonialism in the key relationship of cultivation and civility in Tudor England and shows the central role this played in Tudor strategies for settling, civilising and colonising Ireland. The book ranges from the role of cartography, surveying and material culture – houses, fences, fields, roads and bridges – in manifesting the new order to the place of diet, leisure, language and hairstyles in establishing cultural differences as a site of conflict between the Irish and the imperialising state and as a justification for the civilising process. It shows that the ideologies and strategies of colonisation which would later be applied in the New World were already apparent in the practices, material culture and hardening attitude towards barbarous customs of the Tudor regime.</p>
Courting the Moderates: Ideology, Propaganda, and the Emergence of Party, 1660-1678Montaño, JohnUniversity of Delaware Press2002<p>​This book is concerned with the political culture sponsored by the government of Charles II and its role in the emergence of political parties during the Restoration. It argues that various forms of official propaganda existed that expressed coherent ideological positions. These opinions were the necessary precursors to the political parties that emerged after the Exclusion Crisis. While acknowledging the importance of organization in the process of party development, the majority of this work deals with the ideological differences that Restoration political culture helped to expose. The study of political culture here is informed by an interdisciplinary approach to a wide variety of genres. As a result, part one focuses primarily on the printed materials offered by the government to the rapidly expanding political nation.</p>
