    "...useful and authoritative..." Times Literary Supplement

    "The Companion is an impressive collection of advanced Irish scholarship. A quarter century ago, Terence Brown wrote that 'in Ireland intellectual, cultural, and social history are each infant disciplines.' The Cambridge Companion to Modern Irish Culture constitutes powerful evidence that these disciplines are now developing in Ireland in a number of compelling trajectories." - Mater Dei INstitute of Education, Dublin City University
