Product Description

Review

This is a landmark book, full of insight and intelligent judgement and sheer diligent research, which deals with the complexity of the Irish revolution and its aftermath. Ferriter is at ease in the world of high politics and policy-making, but it is his work on economic, social, cultural and gender issues, which makes his account of Ireland during this period itself a transformation in historical methodology (Colm Tobin)

Ferriter deserves great credit for taking a more holistic approach to the narrative of 20th-century Ireland. (Paul Bew Sunday Times)

The country enters the twenty-first century on a wave of prosperity and apparent self-confidence. The achievement of Diarmaid Ferriter's massive new history is to show just how hard-won this success has been ... This will be an influential book, and is a remarkable achievement. (Roy Foster The Guardian)

There are no easy answers in this book to definitively explain the transformation of Ireland, but the journey is fascinating and well worth the effort. (Public Servant)

Deeply honest ... This huge book is a rich study of Ireland in the twentieth century. It is a veritable mine of information. (Tom Devine Glasgow Herald)

A timely and masterful new survey of twentieth-century Ireland. This is Ireland laid bare. (Marianne Elliott, Professor of Modern History Liverpool University)

This is one of the most important books to be published this year (John Bruton Irish Independent)

The most vivid and stimulating history of 20th century Ireland currently available. (Fintan O'Toole)

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
One of the most comprehensive and well researched books on the subject. Anti-revisionist in his approach, the amount of research that has gone into Ferriter's account of the Irish Republic is astounding and what it lacks in detail in parts it makes up for in breadth of topic. There are some minor inaccuracies but the story is so well told I would recommend this book for anyone starting an interest in the history of Ireland in the 20th century. Ferriter links the events in Ireland's chaotic century well and spares no blushes in his critique of the social and cultural issues belying the political and economic development and the stereotypical world image of one of the world's most recent democracies in her struggle for independence, respectability and status on the world stage.I look forward to his future works.The Transformation Of Ireland 1900-2000

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A 759 page book which describes in detail the life of the Eire populace in the post war ( WW2) period . The post independence period of 1921 not so, I was in particular wanting to know how the economy and Eire's use of the Pound Sterling functioned in the light of Scottish Independence and Whitehall's claim that Scotland could not use the Pound unless agreed to by the Westminster Govt. It was not a problem for the parties in 1921.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is an excellent purchase. Not only did I receive the product perfectly on-time but, usual, it was in pristine condition. This text is excellent for any current or budding undergraduate or indeed anyone with a general interest in Irish history. It may feel like a heavy tome and quite intimidating to the Irish history virgin but they can relax given how exceptionally easy this book is to read. Despite being easy to read it packs a great punch into a very complex history. Overall, I'd thoroughly recommend this book to the layperson or the undergraduate. Magnificent text.
