First published over forty years ago and now updated to cover the "Celtic Tiger" economic boom of the 2000s and subsequent worldwide recession, this new edition of a perennial bestseller interprets Irish history as a whole. Designed and written to be popular and authoritative, critical and balanced, it has been a core text in both Irish and American universities for decades. It has also proven to be an extremely popular book for casual readers with an interest in history and Irish affairs. Considered the definitive history among the Irish themselves, it is an essential text for anyone interested in the history of Ireland.… (mais)

True confession time. Mea culpa. I received an ARC of this book as an early reviewer in 2012. I am an avid reader and an avid fan of Ireland. Supposedly written for both the academic and popular market, it came across only as a dry, boring and fusty old textbook. It is/was assigned reading for some college courses on Ireland. It definitely is not pop lit.

Interestingly, this book (the fifth edition) has a grand total of 15 reviews on Amzn - all glowing except one which also seemed the most discerning and accurate. Most Irish-Americans can't get enough of good Irish reads. With only 15 reviews, it appears I am not the only member of the pop lit market that is resoundingly uninterested in this text.

There are very few books I DNF. This is one of them. Yet I still have it on my shelves thinking (but not really believing) one day, I shall plow through it. Most likely, it shall just sit there for possible reference if ever needed.

There are 1250 books on Irish History rated on GoodReads. I'd recommend choosing a more reader-friendly text.

Or check out Marianne Elliott, director of the Institute of Irish Studies at Liverpool University and author, who recommends her top ten Irish History books.

Well, better late than never. I have finally eased my Irish - (formerly) Catholic guilt by finally posting this long past due review. ( )

This is one of the preeminent sources for Irish history; an earlier edition of the work was the main textbook for my graduate Irish history course. Balanced and nonsectarian. This is the product of several historians writing about their areas of expertise, representing the cream of Irish historical scholarship. ( )

As most histories go, the focus is on the political and economical developments over the years and this book does not disappoint; though it should be noted that this history is very readable and approachable to the lay person, as each chapter is written by a different, authoritative author (i.e. Irish history professors who need work). The only problem I had was feeling a little lost in the latter fourth of the book and not having it clarified in a simple statement until a couple of chapters later. Also, it would have been better if the editors had switched the position of chapters 20 & 21, as the way chapter 20 (Northern Ireland 1921-66) was written (and given my lack of understanding of what was going on in that area at that time), I wasn't sure where the 'bigger picture' allegiances were.

All in all, I would recommend the book for someone looking for a comprehensive and readable history of Ireland.

An excellent overview of the history of Ireland. Each chapter was written by a different author, giving many different perspectives on the history of the country. Provides an excellent starting point for gaps of knowledge in history as much could be considered basic. It all depends on what you know about the history of the country. We don't learn a lot about Ireland over here in the States unless we learn it on our own or take elective classes in college. My focus had always been on very early Ireland. I really had no idea exactly how confusing the situation with Northern Ireland was after partition. Granted, it really never should have been done, but for those who ended up being moved there, a united Ireland would have put Protestants in a country that lived under Catholic laws in terms of things like divorce and abortion--something I never really thought about and as an American I find the idea of abhorrent. I just always assumed Ireland should be one country, a black and white issue. So this book really opened my eyes. ( )

Having no background in Irish history this book filled this gap in my education. A good balance of detail and perspective without falling into emotionalism. ( )
