Revisionism has been an important issue in Irish history for several years, as varying partisan accounts of the Irish past have been rewritten and "rescued" by journalists and historians of different political persuasions.The Making of Modern Irish Historybrings together distinguished historians of Ireland, each of whom tackles a key question, issue or event in Irish history since the eighteenth century. Topics discussed include the Great Famine, new ideas on the 1916 rising, the "diaspora," and the current troubles of the country. These original contributions take account of new evidence and perspectives, as well as up-to-date historical methodology. Their combination of synthesis and analysis represent a valuable guide to the present state of the writing of modern Irish history.
