  • The Irish Storyby R. F. Foster

    Oxford University Press 2004; US$ 13.99

    Roy Foster is one of the leaders of the iconoclastic generation of Irish historians. In this opinionated, entertaining book he examines how the Irish have written, understood, used, and misused their history over the past century. Varied, surprising, and funny, the interlinked essays examine the stories that people tell each other in Ireland and why,... more...

  • Luck and the Irishby R. F. Foster

    Penguin Books Ltd 2008; US$ 12.68

    From 1970, things were changing in Ireland – the Celtic Tiger had finally woken, and the rules for everything from gender roles and religion to international relations were being entirely rewritten. Luck and the Irish examines how the country has weathered these last thirty years of change, and what these changes may mean in the long run. R. F.... more...

    Penguin Books Ltd 2002; US$ 18.32

    Each of Foster's books has generated vigorous discussion, but in THE IRISH STORY he breaks fresh ground even by his own standards. Driven by his sense of the seriousness of history and a fascination with those who distort it, THE IRISH STORY examines how key facets of Ireland's past have been tampered with to serve a multiplicity of purposes. THE... more...

  • Words Aloneby R. F. Foster

    OUP Oxford 2011; US$ 12.99

    Yeats is usually seen as a great modernist innovator. This book goes against the grain to explore the Irish literary traditions that preceded and influenced him—romantic 'national tales' in post-Union Ireland, the poetry and polemic of the Young Ireland movement, the occult novels of Sheridan LeFanu, and William Carleton's 'peasant fictions'. more...

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 134.53

    The semi-arid zones of the world are fragile ecosystems which are being sub­ stantially modified by the activities of mankind. Increasing human populations have resulted in greater demands on semi-arid zones for providing human susten­ ance and the possibility that this may enhance desertification is a grave concern. These zones are harsh habitats... more...
