Author Neil Hegarty gives readers a fresh perspective on Irish history in this comprehensive and engaging book that places Ireland in an international context. Hegarty offers a new look at Irish history, challenging the accepted stories and long-held myths associated with Ireland. This book transports readers to the Ireland of the past, and, through events such as the Europe's 16th century religious wars, the French and American revolutions, and Ireland's policy of neutrality during World War II, examines how world events have shaped the country from 8000 BC to the present. Spanning Irish history from the first settlement to the current financial crisis, this book is sure to fascinate anyone who is interested in Ireland and its past.
