This new Short History of Modern Ireland is concise, comprehensive and original in approach. It combines a strong narrative with explanation and interpretation. Locating Ireland within a European context throughout the period, it also stresses the influence of the Anglo-American world. Written in an accessible style, it assumes no previous knowledge of Irish history. It is, therefore, the perfect introduction to the subject for visitors to Ireland, and illuminating for Irish people themselves. Book jacket.
