Sinopsis:

This classic book tells the history of eight hundred years of the Irish people's struggles for freedom. It takes us from the arrival of English settlers in the Middle ages up to the present day -the struggle in the words of James Fintan Lalor, to make "Ireland her own, and all therein, from the sod to the sky". The author describes this book as 'An Outline History of the Irish struggle for National Freedom and Independence', but it is much more than that. As an 'Outline History' it has no equal, and for several reasons. In the first place this is the only book in which, right from the beginning and throughout it's pages, the economic factors are placed in a proper perspective alongside of and intermingled with the political. Many historians have written of this long struggle with pride and emotion, but none has produced anything so effective as this memorable account of every aspect of Irish social, economic and political history. The book describes the conquest and the first steps taken by England towards Empire in the 12th Century and brings the reader up to the partition of Ireland in the early 1920's. Added to this, C. Desmond Greaves has written a concluding chapter on the events from the then to the civil rights movement of the late 1960's and the start of the current round of troubles in Northern Ireland It is not only a clearly and vigorously written history, but also a guide to Imperialism in general and an invaluable handbook for all students of politics whatever their opinions may be T. A Jackson was born in London in 1879 and served an apprenticeship as a printer He was known as a radical socialist, a prolific, lively and witty writer for left wing press he wrote a number of books. His other books include Dialectics: The Logic of Marxism, Charles Dickens: The Progress of a Radical, Trials of British Freedom, Socialism: What? Why? How?, Solo Trumpet, Old Friends To Keep. Edited and with an Epilogue by C. Desmond Greaves.
