    A detailed and fascinating history of this period

    Dr Terence Brown is an Irish academic. I imagine that this book is aimed more towards an academic audience than the casual reader, although it is both interesting and readable in ways many academically-targeted books are not. I did find that the later sections (added in 2002 to update the history for the period 1980 -2001) were heavy on lengthy polysyllabic words which required ready access to the mercifully handy e-dictionary. Hence the 4 stars. A detailed and fascinating record of the period from 1922 with references back to the Easter Rising, the social unrest of the 1800s, the uprising of 1798 and the Famine. Unfortunately it stops short of the main era of eastern European immigration and the banking crisis, both of which have had a major impact on Irish society and culture. Another update required!
