While it does read like a series of lectures on the topic it is an interesting look at a time of great change in Ireland from urban to rural and from farmer focus to factory focus. This is the post-famine era up to independence so it's quite a busy time in Ireland and a complete change in focus and society.A great glimpse into the period but I'm not sure sometimes that things are quite as easily explained as they're presented.
