Summary

Summary

This volume of essays in honor of Patrick Buckland reflects the making of modern Irish historical writings. It addresses several key issues and topics: Irish emigration and its consequences for the migrants, the host country and the land they left behind; the sharpening of sectarian conflict in Ireland and efforts to overcome this; Anglo-Irish relations and in particular the role of Irish nationalism in this context; and the relationship between politics and culture.
