The story of the Irish race : a popular history of Ireland by Seumas MacManus( Book )

91 editions published between 1921 and 2013 in English and French and held by 2,562 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Everyone knows that St. Patrick drove the snakes from Irish soil, that Dean Swift's "A Modest Proposal," on the sufferings of the Irish people in the age of Queen Anne, is one of the masterpieces of satire on governmental stupidity and cruelty, that the Irish are a great race of fighters and poets and singers and saints, that Tristan's Isolde came from Ireland, that Deirdre of the Sorrows was a great legendary beauty and heroine, that somewhere along the line were Irish heroes, and that from time immemorial the Irish and English have been at loggerheads and still are. But the average person knows little more of the great history of the Irish people- a history too important to ignore, and a chronicle too fascinating to miss. This book presents the whole saga of the Irish from the earliest times to our own. It gives not only the facts and dates and names, but a real sense of the mind and temperament of a people, their way of life, ideals, and an understanding account of their culture. This is an indispensable work for anyone who wants to understand the Irish people- their political struggle, their magnificent literature, and their whole great contribution to Western Civilization. -- Publisher description
