Modern Ireland: A Very Short Introduction

Senia Paseta

Very Short Introductions

  • A brief overview of the central themes in Irish history, politics, and culture over the last 200 years
  • Challenging new angles and under-researched areas are broached, such as women's history and the lives of the Catholic middle class
  • Senia Paseta comes to the subject as an historian with a refreshingly impartial (and sometimes acerbic) perspective on Irish history
  • Ideal introduction for newcomer to subject, but original treatment makes it also essential reading for those already familiar with aspects of Irish history
