The Oxford Illustrated History of Ireland
The Oxford Illustrated History of Ireland
Foster, R F (Ed)
Few countries in the world have such a compelling, individual, and stirring history as Ireland. This new volume in a distinguished series offers the most authoritative account of Irish history ever published for the general reader. Written by an expert team of scholars, and richly illustrated throughout, it takes us from the very earliest prehistoric communities and first Christian settlements, through centuries of turbulent change to the present day. The conflicts, settlements, discontinuities, and unities of Irish history are illustrated with reference to landscape, artefacts, architecture, and an enormous variety of contemporary visual evidence. There are over 200 photographs including 24 full-colour plates, and the volume comes complete with reference material, maps, a chronology, lists of further reading and a full index.
