Isaac Nelson

Radical Abolitionist, Evangelical Presbyterian, and Irish Nationalist

Daniel Ritchie

Liverpool University Press

  • The book concisely assesses the contribution of an important, but misunderstood figure in Irish history
  • It is a thematic and contextual historical biography and thus avoids the superfluous detail that often mars biographical writing
  • It breaks new ground in its consideration of Belfast's role in transatlantic abolitionism and in illuminating the neglected topic of evangelical opposition to popular revivalism
