Cambridge Social History of Modern Ireland

by Eugenio F. Biagini

Covering three centuries of unprecedented demographic and economic changes, this textbook is an authoritative and comprehensive view of the shaping of Irish society at home and abroad from the famine of 1740 to the present day. The first major work on the history of modern Ireland to adopt a social history perspective, it focuses on the experience and agency of Irish men, women and children, Catholics and Protestants, in the north, south and the diaspora. An international team of leading scholars surveys key changes in population, the economy, occupations, property ownership, class and migration as well as considering the interaction of the individual and the state through welfare, education, crime and policing. Drawing on a wide range of disciplinary approaches, this is an invaluable resource for courses on modern Irish history and Irish studies.
