The two most profound shocks of the century, the world wars, met Ireland obliquely while partition and civil war were embittering first-hand experiences whose legacies continue to shape the course of events. How did the Irish revolution come about and what was its nature?

How did Ulster end up with the rich irony of being the only part of Ireland to embrace Home Rule? How well did the new Republics promise of freedom assuage the painful reality, until the 1960s, of low economic growth and persistent emigration? Why was the Northern Ireland state unable or unwilling to conciliate its minority Catholic population?This masterful new history is the first account to cover the whole of Ireland, north and south, from the origins of Sinn Fein at the beginning of the century to the Stormont agreement at the end.

Townsbend provides a concise, comprehensive, and balanced survey of the key points in Irelands history, making this book ideal for anyone coming to twentieth-century Irish history for the first time.
