For a nation with a relatively small territory and population, Ireland has had a remarkable influence in the English-speaking world. In the United States alone, it is estimated that there are now forty-four million descendants of Irish lineage. For them and for students and interested readers, this up-to-date, concise, and fascinating volume is an ideal introduction to the history of Ireland. Hollis, an expert on Irish history, traces Ireland from its beginnings in the Neolithic era to events and issues in the year 2000. Carefully weaving the thread of complex relations between Britain and Ireland through the centuries, he portrays the dramatic events that led to the formation of the Republic, the troubles with Northern Ireland, and the complex economic and political issues that prevail in Ireland today.

The work begins with a panoramic sketch of Ireland today, its geography, demography, economy and government. Chronologically arranged chapters trace the political, economic, social and cultural history of Ireland and the key personalities who shaped it. Ready-reference features include a timeline for easy reference to events, brief identifications of key personalities in the history of Ireland, and a bibliographic essay. Every library should update its resources on Ireland with this lively and succinct narrative history.
