Overview

The third volume in this series reveals how, through the League of Nations, the Commonwealth and a small network of overseas missions, the Department of External Affairs protected Ireland's international interests in the increasingly unstable world system of the late 1920s and the early 1930s. The book examines the visit of W.T. Cosgrave to the US and Canada in January 1928, the first overseas visit by an Irish Prime Minister. It also looks at Irish relations with the Holy See in the run-up to the 1932 Eucharist Congress in Dublin, the views of Irish diplomats on the collapse of Weimar Germany, and the use by Irish diplomats of new technologies such as cinema newsreels and talkie films.

The Irish Department of Foreign Affairs suggested and is financing the publication of documents that began being transferred from it and other government departments to the National Archives in 1986. They are selected as being of use to scholars to understand the evolution of policies and decisions. The first volume, covering 1919-22 appeared in 1998; the third, extending to 1932, is expected in the winter of 2002. Distributed in the US by ISBS. Annotation c.
