    • This is a detailed examination of the phenomenon of nationalism as it has appeared in Ireland. The book is well researched, if, perhaps, a little dated now and has probably been superseded by Richard English's excellent Irish Freedom: A History of Nationalism in Ireland. Even so, the book still repays reading, and much of the current trend of questioning the myths of Irish nationalism can be seen in embryonic form here.
