Description

Written and illustrated with both Higher and Ordinary level students in mind. Modern Ireland covers three syllabus topics, two of which students must select for study: - Movements for Political and Social Reform, 1870-1914 (on which the compulsory documents-study question in the Leaving Certificate Examination will be based; see inside book for details) - The Pursuit of Sovereignty and the Impact of Partition, 1912-49 - Government, Economy and Society in the Republic of Ireland, 1949-89. Detailed guidance is also given for the research study, which all students must complete. A sample of a finished research study is included to help students prepare their own work in this vital area of the course. All the required Case Studies are included with documentary and visual evidence and accompanying exercises. Key Personalities and Key Concepts are highlighted, as required by the syllabus. Numerous exam-focussed questions and exercises are provided after each chapter. The coverage reflects the wider emphasis in the new syllabus on Politics and Administration; Society and Economy; Culture, Religion and Science. New syllabus outline is included for ease of reference.show more
