Description:

A New History of Ireland provides a concise, lucid and nuanced approach to Ireland's complex and fascinating history. It will appeal to anyone interested in this diverse and intriguing country. Christine Kinealy incorporates some of the most recent scholarship to explore the key developments and personalities that have helped to shape this country over 1500 years. From the arrival of the Anglo-Normans in the twelfth century - which began Ireland's complex and tortuous relationship with England - to Cromwell's invasion, the Plantation of Ulster, the Great Famine and Nationalism, Christine Kinealy challenges the dominant interpretation of events.
