BeschreibungIn "War and Peace: ""Ireland Since 1960, " Christine Kinealy explores the political triumphs and travails in Ireland over the last five decades. "War and Peace "provides a thorough and up-to-date account of the unfolding of "The Troubles," the three decades of violence and social unrest between the Catholic nationalists and the Protestant unionists. In addition, Kinealy examines the Republic of Ireland's entry into the European Union in 1973, its often contentious relationship with England, and the changes in emigration during the period. Of additional interest to Kinealy is the effect of the women's movement, which has given rise to the election of two female presidents, proving Ireland's ability to accept and internalize change.
PortraitChristine Kinealy is Professor of History at the Caspersen Graduate School at Drew University in New Jersey. She is the author of many books, including Repeal and Revolution (2009) and The Great Famine in Ireland (2002).
