Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

By the twentieth century Ireland had a history very different from that of most other western European countries. The two most profound shocks of the century, the world wars, affected Ireland indirectly, while partition and civil war were embittering first-hand experiences whose legacies continue to shape the course of events. This masterful new history is the first account to cover the whole of Ireland, north and south, from the origins of Sinn Fein at the beginning of the century to the Stormont agreement at the end. Townshend provides a concise, comprehensive, and balanced survey of the key points in Ireland's history.

"An excellent survey: concise but extensive, thoughtful and well-informed, incisive but judicious. Useful to the student and the general reader."—William Sheridan Allen, SUNY at Buffalo

Synopsis:

This account of conflict in Ireland provides a context for the crisis-ridden years of the 1920s, and treats relevant issues in analytical depth. It takes account of "revisionist" historians and their opponent's disputes, together with historical findings and interpretations.
