In this compelling and authoritative study, Ireland's bestselling popular historian tells the extraordinary story of how contemporary Ireland came into existence. Covering both South and North and dealing with social & cultural history as well as political, this controversial and inspiring account of a nation on the move will surely become a definitive single volume account of the making of modern Ireland.
"Articulate, eloquent, romantic and wonderfully self-deprecating ... oozes what Yeats once called 'an indomitable Irishry'."
