Overview

This new Short History of Modern Ireland is concise, comprehensive and original in approach. It combines a strong narrative with explanation and interpretation.

Written in an accessible style, it assumes no previous knowledge of Irish history. It is, therefore, the perfect introduction to the subject for visitors to Ireland, and illuminating for Irish people themselves.
