Overview

Nazi gold, fugitive war criminals, the threat of nuclear war, and the growing global dominance of Communism - issues dealt with by Irish diplomats in the years immediately after the end of World War II - are central themes in this latest volume of Documents on Irish Foreign Policy, a series which continues to open up the secret archives of the Department of Foreign Affairs. Volume VIII runs from 1945 to 1948 and shows that during the immediate post-war years, Ireland redefined its global position as a result of wartime neutrality and the developing Cold War. Previously thought to be years of vacuum and general isolation, the immediate post-war years saw Ireland engage with a wide range of multilateral organizations, open new diplomatic missions, and repair relations with various States - in particular the United States and Britain - which had suffered during World War II. (Series: Documents on Irish Foreign Policy - Vol. VIII)
