Ireland in the World Order: A History of Uneven Development (Paperback)Maurice Coakley (author)
- We can order this
Maurice Coakley focuses on key elements that contributed to Ireland's development, examining its bloody and violent incorporation into the British state, its refusal to embrace the Protestant Reformation and failure to industrialise in the 19th century. Coakley considers the crucial question of why Ireland's national identity has come to rest on a mass movement for independence.
Cutting through many of the myths - imperialist and nationalist - which have obscured the real reasons for Ireland's course of development, Ireland in the World Order provides a new perspective on Irish history.
