About this title

Synopsis:

The population of Ireland is five million, but 70 million call themselves Irish. Here is their story in all its richness and complexity. Tim Pat Coogan traveled around the world where green is indeed worn to talk to the people who weaved the tale of "a dream born in a herdsman's shed and the secret scriptures of the poor." Along with American presidents, best-selling authors and Riverdancers, Ireland gave the world a caring tradition borne by missionaries and teachers who spread a message of hope and the panorama of their life abroad comes alive in this magisterial work.

From the Inside Flap:

Far more Irishmen live outside Ireland than within it. This fascinating study by Ireland?s best-known and most controversial contemporary historian, reveals why this is, how it has come about and what the political, economic, religious and cultural realities are today for the populations of the ?Irish Diaspora? in the countries they now inhabit.
