Ireland's History provides an introduction to Irish history that blends a scholarly approach to the subject, based on recent research and current historiographical perspectives, with a clear and accessible writing style. All the major themes in Irish history are covered, from prehistoric times right through to present day, from the emergence of Celtic Christianity after the fall of the Roman Empire, to Ireland and the European Union, secularism and rapprochement with the United Kingdom. By avoiding adopting a purely nationalistic perspective, Kenneth Campbell offers a balanced approach, covering not only social and economic history, but also political, cultural, and religious history, and exploring the interconnections among these various approaches. This text will encourage students to think critically about the past and to examine how a study of Irish history might inform and influence their understanding of history in general.

The antecedents of fantasy literature extend back to the very beginnings of storytelling itself, but modern fantasy became recognizable as a distinct literary form only in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, with the publication of the novels of William Morris and the short stories of Lord Dunsany. The emphasis by these writers and their successors on ideal and sometimes less than ideal places and peoples who exist only in a realm of pure imagination laid the foundation for later works by J. R. R. Tolkien and many others. Book jacket.

Illustrating the variety of the Irish landscapes this book explores the landscapes that are linked to rocks and the rocks to history, past and present. For its size there is a great range of rock types and rock ages in the northern third of Ireland.Interspersed with the brief text are sections entitled Mythology and Geology. Here will be found stories of Finn McCool, who of course was a wellknown local giant, the Children of Lir, the tragedy of Finngheal, the speaking horse of Benlaughlin, Câlann's Hound, the sacred waters of the Shannon Pot and more. Then there is Ireland's World Tour which traces the origin of our rocks to distant places before they came together in the emerald isle. Sections headed - Did you know, explains some of the natural wonders like Sligo's coral reefs, the Marble Arch Caves and the equivalent of Death Valley in Co Down. Forces that changed the landscape describes the volcanic past with yet more facts and fiction/mythology. Then the story moves to times when humans arrived on these shores. The Axe Factor is about the Stone Age and how local axes transformed life and the landscape. Prominent Monuments follows the theme of the prehistoric peoples and their stone circles and dolmens. The Era of Buildings takes the reader through to the Middle Ages with castles, crosses and temples. Then it moves on to more modern times and the buildings of the last century. Finally, a chapter called Ancient Resources, Modern Dilemmas. Perhaps most surprising will be how much use has been made of the natural resources, yet the wounds to the landscape have mostly healed. Now another phase of mineral and gas exploration is upon us. New sorts of maps are being developed to meet modern needs, which will include coping with a growing population in a seemingly ever more wasteful and energy inefficient society.

Graham Robb's new book will change the way you see European civilization. Inspired by a chance discovery, Robb became fascinated with the world of the Celts: their gods, their art, and, most of all, their sophisticated knowledge of science. His investigations gradually revealed something extaordinary: a lost map, of an empire constructed with precision and beauty across vast tracts of Europe. The map had been forgotten for almost two millennia and its implications were astonishing. Minutely researched and rich in revelations, The Ancient Paths brings to life centuries of our distant history and reinterprets pre-Roman Europe. Told with all of Robb's grace and verve, it is a dazzling, unforgettable book.
