First published in 1977, 'The Irish World 'is to this day the only book to cover the whole of Irish culture with such erudition and in such glorious illustrations. Eleven leading scholars and writers trace the story of Ireland, its history, cultural mores, religion and politics through the ages, covering every peak and trough of its often turbulent past. With essays on prehistoric Ireland, the early Irish Church and its masterpieces of manuscript illuminations, the Viking invasions, the Protestant Ascendancy, the Celtic revival in art, poetry and drama, and the Irish in America, 'The Irish World' presents the whole of Ireland - the greatness as well as the suffering; the enduring victories as well as the setbacks.
