A New History of Ireland is the largest scholarly project in modern Irish history. In 9 volumes, it provides a comprehensive new synthesis of modern scholarship on every aspect of Irish history and prehistory, from the earliest geological and archaeological evidence, through the Middle Ages,down to the present day. Volume V opens with a character study of the period, followed by twenty chapters of narrative history, covering sectarian conflict, politics of the era and the impact of the Great Famine. Further thematic chapters examine emigration, the economy, legal developments, literature, and education, endingwith a study of Ireland in 1870.
W. E. Vaughan is Senior Lecturer in History at Trinity College Dublin.

Editorial Reviews

"important ... Almost all the chapters deserve careful reading and the volume should not be seen merely as a monument to the work of scholars in increasing our understanding over the last twenty years. It should also stimulate continued debate about the Union and the dynamic of the relationsbetween Britain and Ireland of which we are very directly the inheritors." --History
