Ireland's bestselling popular historian tells the story of contemporary Ireland - controversial, authoritative and highly readable. Tim Pat Coogan's biographies of Michael Collins and DeValera and his studies of the IRA, the Troubles and the Irish Diaspora have transformed our understanding of contemporary Ireland, and all have been massive bestsellers. Now he has produced a major history of Ireland in the twentieth century. Covering both South and North and dealing with cultural and social history as well as political, this enthralling work will become the definitive single-volume account of the making of modern Ireland.

Review quote

"A journey into our own psyche ... Tim Pat Coogan has dug, Heaney-like, into the past while opening doors to faraway places" -- Frank McCourt "It is the result of great energy, imagination and painstaking detective work ... It is a big book on a big topic. Don't just read it. Buy it and reread it" * Irish Times * "Vividly painted - A tour de force, delivered in Tim Pat Coogan's inimitable style" * Ireland on Sunday *
