Ireland Since 1800: Conflict and Conformity (Studies in Modern History)by K. Theodore Hoppen
Synopses & Reviews
The second edition of this bestselling survey of modern Irish history covers social, religious as well as political history and offers a distinctive combination of chronological and thematic approaches.
Hoppen begins by investigating key developments in Irish history from the Act of Union in 1800 to the famine of the late 1840s, then following with an examination for the period from the Famine to the partition of 1921 and concludes with the fortunes of the two Irelands, North and South, since partition.
Much has happened — historically and historiographically — to Ireland in the decade since the first edition was published and the author has incorporated the events of these crowded years and has reworked some of the earlier material and its presentation in light of new scholarship.
An examination of the main aspects of Irish history since 1800. The text is divided into three key periods: the Act of Union in 1800 to the famine of the late 1840s; the famine to the partition of 1921; and the fortunes of Northern and Southern Ireland since partition.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 291-332) and index.
