Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

As director of the Institute of Irish Studies at the U. of Liverpool, Patrick Buckland (now retired) contributed much to the study of the history of Irish unionism and Northern Ireland. This volume contains 12 essays by Buckland's colleagues discussing a range of themes and issues integral to contemporary debates in modern Irish history. Sample topics include the 1689 siege of Derry, the impact of the Laws of Settlement and Removal (1819-79) on Irish migrants, and the cultural importance of Celtic mythology in 19th-century Ireland. Distributed in the U.S. by ISBS.
