A History of Ireland

by

A History of Ireland Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A tiny island in the North Atlantic, Ireland has had an astonishingly powerful impact on the wider world, both at the height of its independent power in the early middle ages, as the key exporter of Christianity to much of Europe, and at the depth of its colonial subjugation by Britain, as the primary source of millions of settlers to North America and Australia. A History of Ireland explores the story of Ireland from the 12th century to the end of the 20th century. Written chronologically, it explores the period of the English invasion of Ireland, the emergence of a Gaelic culture, the religious conflicts across the centuries, the struggle over Home Rule, and the complex nature of the modern troubles. Covering the main political narratives of the country, A History of Ireland also delves into major economic, social, and cultural events, and offers a fascinating glimpse into Irelands past.

Synopsis:

An lucid and lively history of Ireland from the twelfth century to the present day

For a small island in the Atlantic, Ireland has had an astonishingly powerful impact on the wider world, both at the height of its independent power in the early middle ages (as a key exporter of Christianity to much of Europe) and at the depth of its colonial subjugation by Britain (as a key exporter of millions of settlers to North America and Australia). This work offers a lucid account of Ireland's history, which should be of value both to the student and to the general reader.
