This work is a modern translation of James Yonge’s manuscript, The Gouernaunce of Prynces, which was originally completed by a Dominican scholar in 1422. Yonge’s text has been noted as one of the primary documents written during the English occupation of Ireland, but until now, his work was only available to scholars literate in Middle English. This book facilitates additional information and a better understanding of the work.

Reviews

“Kerns further aim in bringing [this work] to the attention of the wider readership is to encourage new multidisciplinary research in late Medieval Irish studies. When this vision is realized, her new edition will reap its just reward.” – Elizabeth Matthew, Department of History, University of Reading
