Oxford History of Ireland by R. F. Foster

Book Description

Under the editorship of R. F. Foster, a team of distinguished Irish historians has produced a challenging assessment of Ireland's history, invaluable for the student and general reader alike. Their approach stresses the ancient, rooted nature of Irish culture, but also looks beyond received ideas of Irish history to explore the patterns of fragmentation and change which have been characteristic of Ireland's past. The long-contested question of Irish identity and its relation to language is also fruitfully examined. The text of this book, originally published in The Oxford Illustrated History of Ireland, is usefully supplemented with a chronology of Irish history, maps, and suggestions for further reading.

Vivid Faces by R. F. Foster Vivid Faces, Paperback (May 2015)

Surveys the lives and beliefs of the people who made the Irish Revolution: linked together by youth, radicalism, subversive activities, enthusiasm and love. This title deals with argumentative, exciting, subversive and original lives of people who made a revolution, as well as the disillusionment in which it ended.

Words Alone by R. F. Foster Words Alone, Paperback (December 2012)

Yeats is usually seen as a great modernist innovator. This book goes against the grain to explore the Irish literary traditions that preceded and influenced him-romantic 'national tales' in post-Union Ireland, the poetry and polemic of the Young Ireland movement, the occult novels of Sheridan LeFanu, and William Carleton's 'peasant fictions'.

Charles Stewart Parnell by R. F. Foster Charles Stewart Parnell, Paperback (October 2010)

Charles Stewart Parnell has traditionally been studied from the political angle. This book places him in the social context of 19th century Irish gentry, and studies him in relation to his remarkable family.

Luck and the Irish by R. F. Foster Luck and the Irish, Paperback (July 2008)

From 1970, things were changing in Ireland - the Celtic Tiger had finally woken, and the rules for everything from gender roles and religion to international relations were being entirely rewritten. This title examines how the country has weathered thirty years of rapid transformation, and what these changes may mean in the long run.
