The Story of Ireland: A History of the Irish People. --- by Neil Hegarty. Such a small country, such a lot of history. This book takes you to the (almost) absolute beginning of the isle’s history up to the (almost) absolute present. Well written, gripping in parts (ok, perhaps those parts where Hegarty delves into the politics (and there IS a lot of politics). But there’s also a lot of conflict (a whole lot of conflict): more so than a small patch of green such as this should have to bear: this is the story of the colonization and the subsequent decolonizing of the first and closest of England’s imperial colonies. A scholarly book that is none the less easy to read, this book features a chronology of the major events in the country’s history; extensive footnotes and an equally extensive bibliography.
