Overview

The perfect book for the Irish enthusiast, history buff, or armchair traveler

More than just a "history" book, The Illustrated History of Ireland is a fascinating combination of text, color maps, photographs, illustrations, and specially commissioned artwork that tells the story of Ireland from earliest times to the present in a compelling fashion. This is a stunning book with accessible text that is supported with artwork on every two-page spread. In addition to serving as a historical reference, it is a guide to various collections of artifacts and sites of historical significance.

In his clearly written text, Sean Duffy stresses the enduring themes of history: the long cultural continuity, the central importance of Ireland's relationships with Britain and mainland Europe, and the intractability of the ethnic and national divisions in modern Ulster. It is a book that both students of Irish history and lay readers will treasure.
