The Making of Ireland by James Lydon provides an accessible history of Ireland from the earliest times. James Lydon recounts, in colourful detail, the waves of settlers, missionaries and invaders which have come to Ireland since pre-history and offers a long perspective on Irish history right up to the present time.
This comprehensive survey includes discussion of the arrival of St. Patrick in the fifth century and Henry II in the twelfth, as well as that of numerous soldiers, traders and craftsmen through the ages. The author explores how these settlers have shaped the political and cultural climate of Ireland today. James Lydon charts the changing racial mix of Ireland through the ages which shaped the Irish nation. The author also follows Ireland's long and troubled entanglement with England from its beginning many centuries ago.
The Making of Ireland offers a complete history in one volume. Through a predominantly political narrative, James Lydon provides a coherent and readable introduction to this vital complex history.
Review: Over the last 10,000 years, Ireland has been a destination for many peoples, including Gaelic-speaking Celts, Britons, Vikings, Anglo-Saxons, and Normans. Each of these peoples has left its trace on modern Irish culture, from the Christianity of the Briton St. Patrick to the language of the Elizabethans; each has contributed its share of confusion to the still-open question of what it means to be Irish. Lydon, a professor of history at Trinity College, describes the many streams that flow into the course of Irish history, describing cultural misunderstandings and ethnic rivalries that have long pedigrees and that continue to inform Irish politics, and tracing such events as the Flight of the Earls, the Anglican ascendancy, and the emergence of the Irish Republic in the early 20th century. --Gregory McNamee
