'Out on the Western edge of Europe, a first glance at the map makes Ireland seem a small and isolated place. However, many peoples have by turns established themselves on this remote island, creating an historical dynamic whose dispersed voices are now heard in almost every major city of the globe, in accents unmistakably from Cork or Connemara, Donegal or Dublin. This atlas attempts to explain in a visual, accessible way Ireland's unfolding story, and how this small country's remarkable worldwide impact has come about.' From the Foreword The bestselling Atlas of Irish History tells the story of the Irish past in graphic cartography, beautifully rendered and augmented by an authoritative text. It is an essential reference tool for any student of Irish history. This new edition covers recent momentous events such as the transformative boom and bust of the Republic's economy and the extraordinary course of developments in Northern Ireland that resulted in the power-sharing administration of the DUP and Sinn Fein.
