Land has been a dominant theme in modern Irish history, extending to political and cultural issues as well as permeating social and economic ones. Recent scholarship has uncovered a picture richer in detail and more complex in its development than traditional images of the land question would suggest. This collection of eleven essays takes an interdisciplinary approach to the subject of land in Ireland, from the time of the Great Famine to present and even future issues. It will be of interest to those concerned with the land and rural society in Ireland, past and present, and with the influence of these in shaping Irish culture.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"an interdisciplinary collection of essays, which ranges from the painstakingly researched to lightly-annotated-but-generally-insightful contributions." Irish Studies Review 9 (3) 2001 "Eleven papers, some of them specific pieces of original research, others general analyses ... edited by Carla King into a fine collection which focuses mainly on the land question. The editor's succinct introduction points to parallels between the Irish and European experience." Irish Historical Studies 2001 "The book is very sound on the cultural emanations from the famine, the growth of an Irish school of art and the influence of Paul Henry, a devotee of Achill Island. The influence of the land on Liam O'Flaherty and his work is discussed at length." Books Ireland Oct 2001
