The Course of Irish History is the classic general history of Ireland, covering the economic, social and political development of the island of Ireland from prehistoric times to the present day. It provides a comprehensive overview of the major events, key personalities and significant movements in Ireland's past that have shaped the country that exists today. First published in 1967, it has been regularly updated and revised in response to the continued demand for a balanced view of Ireland that is both popular and authoritative. In this new edition, a chapter has been added to cover the momentous changes that have occurred in Ireland since 1995. The Good Friday Agreement and devolution have changed the face of Northern Ireland, bringing a measure of peace and stability to a troubled land; economic prosperity and an increasingly liberalised society have transformed the rest of the island. One of the most remarkable periods in Ireland's turbulent history is examined by Professor Dermot Keogh, an expert in the field, in the spirit of objectivity that shapes the rest of The Course of Irish History. The book is illustrated throughout with black-and-white and colour photographs, maps and reproductions of contemporary artefacts and drawings, and includes a detailed bibliography and chronology to aid further research. It is an essential text for anyone interested in the history of Ireland.
