This authoritative, accessible and engaging four-volume history vividly presents the Irish story - or stories - from c.600 to the present, within its broader Atlantic, European, imperial and global contexts. While the volumes benefit from a strong political narrative framework, they are distinctive also in including essays that address the full range of social, economic, religious, linguistic, military, cultural, artistic and gender history, and in challenging traditional chronological boundaries in a manner that offers new perspectives and insights. Each volume examines Ireland's development within a distinct period, and offers a complete and rounded picture of Irish life, while remaining sensitive to the unique Irish experience. Bringing together an international team of experts, this landmark history both reflects recent developments in the field and sets the agenda for future study.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Mammoth ... inspiring ... marvellously satisfying.' Diarmaid Ferriter, The Irish Times
'Comprehensive, fascinating, informative, challenging and rewarding, these are reference resources well worth investing in and turning to, as we attempt to make intelligent sense of the past, the present and the possible future.' Church of Ireland Gazette
'An achievement for which the hundred and more contributors, the four editors and especially their chief, Thomas Bartlett, deserve the very highest praise. All have together brought a complex and mighty undertaking to a successful and timely conclusion. Both they and Cambridge University Press have succeeded in producing not only a scholarly and an exciting work but also one that is well designed: the four volumes being physically as well as intellectually attractive. Floreat Hibernia; floreat Cantabrigia.' K. Theodore Hoppen, Irish Historical Studies
