Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The enjoyments of this book are its many elaborate periods, wonderful put-downs and instantly memorable apercus: practically every paragraph ends with a punch-line." Reviews

"This volume invites comparison to Robert Tracy's recent The Unappeasable Host: Studies in Irish Identities." Choice

"is ambitious in its scope, and it offers an original and compelling exploration of the networks that formed the 'outsized village' that was nineteenth-century Dublin". History of Education
