Ireland: A Reference Guide from the Renaissance to the Present

Ireland: A Reference Guide from the Renaissance to the Present

by John P. McCarthy

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Every country's history warrants a comprehensive A-to-Z of some sort. Given its rich heritage, Ireland is certainly no exception. In fact, it was probably a challenge for McCarthy (Dissent from Irish America) to narrow down the number of entries that make up this reference volume. Still, at under 600 pages, the work is impressively inclusive, covering people (e.g., "James Joyce"), places (e.g., "Nortern Ireland"), and numerous events (e.g., "Bloody Sunday, 1921 and 1972") that shaped the country's cultural and political landscape. Perhaps its depth won't satisfy the serious scholar, but it will certainly be adequate for the average researcher or lay reader. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
