In War and Peace:Ireland Since 1960, Christine Kinealy explores the political triumphs and travails in Ireland over the last five decades. War and Peace provides a thorough and up-to-date account of the unfolding of “The Troubles,” the three decades of violence and social unrest between the Catholic nationalists and the Protestant unionists. In addition, Kinealy examines the Republic of Ireland’s entry into the European Union in 1973, its often contentious relationship with England, and the changes in emigration during the period. Of additional interest to Kinealy is the effect of the women’s movement, which has given rise to the election of two female presidents, proving Ireland’s ability to accept and internalize change.

 Christine Kinealy is a professor of history in the Caspersen Graduate School at Drew University in New Jersey. She is the author of A New History of Ireland and The Great Famine in Ireland: Impact, Ideology and Rebellion.

Editorial Reviews

“Kinealy provides a comprehensive examination of the effects of the Troubles in the evolution of the recent history of Ireland and Northern Ireland. Writing from a perspective that focuses on the civil rights aspects of the conflict, the author explores the narrative of events in a well-researched, well-written manner. It is especially enriching to learn from her how the cultural, literary, and musical fields influenced and responded (or sometimes did not respond) to the Troubles. . . . Highly recommended.”
