Brown, a professor of English at Trinity College, Dublin, has written a very detailed analysis of politics in Ireland as it has been affected by the influences of language, literature, economic theory and practice, and religion in regard to church-state relations from 1922 to 1979, with a ``postscript'' on the ``uncertain 1980s'' added for this American edition. The book is a valuable supplement, both in detail and as an update, to the information on the post-1922 period in F.S.L. Lyons's Ireland Since the Famine (1971). For those with more than a superficial interest in Irish affairs, it should be required reading. For academic and large public libraries. J.F. Moran, SUNY Coll. at Fredonia Lib.

"The vicissitudes of the country over 57 years are objectively and readably surveyed in this pioneering book. It should be read by anybody who wishes . . . to understand those contradictions in its people which continue to bewilder foreign observers."―Economist
"Gaelic, peasant Ireland may still inspire idealists and delight tourists. Terence Brown shows how its influence, still the vital stimulus for some poets and some gunmen, no longer dominates the essential Ireland of the later twentieth century."―Times Educational Supplement
