This review is from: The Transformation Of Ireland 1900-2000 (Paperback)
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

5.0 out of 5 stars Hate clichés, but it is a Masterpiece., 19 Dec. 2012

This review is from: The Transformation Of Ireland 1900-2000 (Paperback)
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.

This review is from: The Transformation Of Ireland 1900-2000 (Paperback)
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.
