The Course of Irish History

Portada
Theodore William Moody, Francis X. Martin
Mercier Press, 1967 - 404 páginas
A general work broadly interpreting the course of Irish history as a whole, in the light of new research. This is a rapid survey, with a geographical introduction, of the whole course of Ireland's history from the middle stone age to 1966, written by 21 scholars, all specialists in their own fields. The book is designed to be both popular and authoritative, concise but comprehensive, highly selective while at the same time balanced and fair-minded, critical but constructive and sympathetic.
