Belfast: A Pocket History

Belfast: A Pocket History Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The book uses contemporary sources, such as eyewitness accounts, Irish annals, government reports and ordnance survey memoirs. It should be useful as an educational tool, as well as a read for anyone interested in the history of Belfast.

Synopsis:

In 1982 Jonathan Bardon published his bestselling Belfast: An Illustrated History. Now, with historian co-author David Burnett, he has created a compact and up-to-date history of this significant Irish port. Covering over thirteen centuries since the first human settlement at the ford on the River Farset, this compact history includes vivid descriptions of the radical politics of the eighteenth century and the rapid growth in industry that made Belfast a world leader in shipbuilding, linen, and ropemaking. The tragedy of the recent Troubles and the nervousness and hope of the current search for peace end this highly readable and authoritative account.

Synopsis:

Written by the author of "Belfast: An Illustrated History" and "A History of Ulster" (with historian David Burnett), this is a brief history of Belfast. The book uses contemporary sources, such as eyewitness accounts, Irish annals, government reports and ordinance survey memoirs.
