The Encyclopedia of Ireland : An A-Z Guide to It's People, Places, History, and Culture
In depth essays on key Irish themes comprise a unique feature of the encyclopedia, and provide the extra detail needed for a full understanding of Ireland's big picture. The selection of essay topics reflects the knowledge most interesting and valuable to readers, such as the "Troubles," tracing Irish ancestors, and the meaning of classic Irish symbols. Main entries on the nation's modern-day institutions, politics, and government add reliable information on today's Ireland and its place in a rapidly consolidating Europe. The book also places a special emphasis on the contributions of the Irish Diaspora, such as Irish Americans, to the rich cultural heritage of the country.
Containing more than 150 historical photographs, several spectacular color-photography sections, and numerous maps and tables, the Encyclopedia of Ireland is a reference work without parallel and a necessity for everyone interested in the Emerald Isle.
