For much of the past millennium, Ireland was not an independent state, making it hard to separate Irish history from the history of the English in Ireland. This original and highly readable history redresses the balance by focusing on the one constant element, the Irish people, charting their development from prehistory to the present. 'Fact windows' in the text illuminate many fascinating aspects of Irish history, and a chronology gives a concise overview of political, cultural and religious trends.
