    Ireland's history has involved successive waves of immigration: Celts, Vikings, Normans, Anglo-Scots settlers, Huguenots and others. Ranging from the island's pre-Gaelic origins to the present, this concise and lucid introduction separates the history from the myths, untangling a complex web of national and religious allegiances. It charts Ireland's troubled and often violent relations with England, emphasizing both the country's uniqueness and its close ties to Europe and America.
