[T]his issue of Irish Impressions is a gift to all interested in Ireland's history or in the writing of G. K. Chesterton."" -- Kathleen Galvas, Southern Renaissance, July 1, 2003.Reseña del editor:
Written at the defining moment when Ireland was heading toward complete national independence, Chesterton's study of the Irish question demonstrates that if both the English and the Irish had modified their attitudes slightly, subsequent Anglo-Irish relations could have been radically improved. Unlike most historians, he tackles the question from an ideological, philosophical, and religious standpoint. As a Roman Catholic and a lover of English nationalism, Chesterton shared many sentiments with the Irish. Written objectively and frankly, this is an important work for any student of English/Irish history as well as an excellent study of the effects of ideology and religion on society.

Descripción Ihs Press, 2002. Paperback. Condición: New. New; The war in Ireland has spanned eight centuries, alternately blowing hot and cold, appearing at times to fade away, only to flare up more forecfully later on. According to the "experts" and media pundits, the conflict is one of religion. But Chesterton reveals in Irish Impressions that at heart the problem is one of freedom. The Irish man wants to be master in his own home, speaking his own language, reading his own books, and drinking his own whiskey. It is a war for the Irish Hearth, the Irish Home, and - ultimately - the integrity of the Irish Soul. This book is the fruit of Chesterton's short visit to Ireland and his long contemplation of political, economic, social and family life. A thoughtful reading of it can only lead to a genuine understanding of the nature of the conflict, and may yet help in bringing peace to both Ireland and England. Nº de ref. del artículo: 004613B
