Selected by RTÉ Radio 1 as a 2016 Irish Booksellers’ Recommended Title

One of The Irish Times “Our Favourite Books of 2016”

One of Choice's Outstanding Academic Titles for 2016

Honorable Mention for the 2017 PROSE Award in Single Volume Reference/Humanities and Social Sciences, Association of American Publishers

The Princeton History of Modern Ireland constitutes a landmark in the interpretation of Irish history by a lavishly talented new generation of historians. . . . It has to be accounted a vital contribution to Irish self-examination at a key moment in the country's history.---Roy Foster, Times Literary Supplement

The scholarship is formidable: all the chapters are grounded in the most up-to-date research, all are substantial, the best sparkle with original insights.---Gearóid Ó Tuathaigh, Irish Times

History at its best. . . . The Princeton History of Modern Ireland is an important, well-written and highly enjoyable contribution to making historical sense of Irish history.---Arthur Aughey, Irish Political Studies

This superb collection of essays is presented explicitly as a state-of the-art report on historical scholarship by the current, successor, generation of Irish historians.---James Smyth, History Ireland

[An] excellent collection of essays. . . . Anyone with an interest in researching, teaching, or simply gaining a fuller understanding of modern Ireland should start by consulting this invaluable resource. (Choice)

A wonderful volume of very sound and excellent essays, beautifully written and introduced by an admirably clear and concise political history from the 16th to the 21st century. . . . All of the essays . . . are worthy of this superb collection of 22 examples of the best modern historical research and examination, itself a model for how academic writing in an illiterate age should be done.---CW, Chronicles

From the Back Cover

“Frequently sparkling with transcendent brilliance, this history of modern Ireland is an invaluable collection.”—J. J. Lee, author ofIreland, 1912–1985

“Bourke and McBride have achieved broad coverage and in-depth analysis of many of the key dimensions and problems in Irish history. This invaluable book commends itself to readers for its comprehensiveness, clarity, and the contributors’ courage in challenging received assumptions about Ireland and exploring Irish history in a wider global context.”—Eugenio F. Biagini, author ofBritish Democracy and Irish Nationalism 1876–1906
