This volume brings together distinguished historians of Ireland, each of whom tackles a key question, issue or event in Irish history since the eighteenth century and:

* examines its historiography
* assesses the context of new interpretations
* considers the strengths and weaknesses of revisionist ideas
* offers their own interpretation.

Topics covered are not only of historical interest but, in the context of recent revisionist debates, of contemporary political significance.

These original contributions take account of new evidence and perspectives, as well as up-to-date historical methodology. Their combination of synthesis and analysis represent a valuable guide to the present state of the writing of modern Irish history.
