The Irish

By Sean O'Faolain Used, Fair Condition
The wild, imaginative, disunited Ireland of the Celts, which for years became the fountainhead of Christianity; the intrusion of Danes and Normans, who defied the Irish horror of towns and began to urbanize the island; the years of English ascendancy, when new populations and a new language were planted; the upsurge of Irish nationalism and Irish letters after 1800 - all these the author records, critically and engagingly. He also distinguishes six representative types which have branched from the Tree of Liberty - the new peasantry, the Anglo-Irish, the rebels, the priests, the writers, and the politicians.
