About the Authors
  • This final volume in the Cambridge History of Ireland covers the period from the 1880s to the present. Based on the most recent and innovative scholarship and research, the many contributions from experts in their field offer detailed and fresh perspectives on key areas of Irish social, economic, religious, political, demographic, institutional and cultural history. By situating the Irish story, or stories - as for much of these decades two Irelands are in play - in a variety of contexts, Irish and Anglo-Irish, but also European, Atlantic and, latterly, global. The result is an insightful interpretation on the emergence and development of Ireland during these often turbulent decades. Copiously illustrated, with special features on images of the 'Troubles' and on Irish art and sculpture in the twentieth century, this volume will undoubtedly be hailed as a landmark publication by the most recent generation of historians of Ireland.

    • Places the Irish experience in the broader context of modern European and global developments, allowing for comparisons and contrasts with other countries to emerge
    • Contains new and original perspectives from the leading scholars in the field
    • Written in an accessible style and supported by full scholarly apparatus and carefully selected maps, tables and illustrations

    Magnificent and magisterial. A very important additional to the literary canon on modern Irish history.
