About the Book
Ireland in the World Order explores Irish history from the medieval to the modern era through the lens of historical materialism. It looks at Ireland’s rejection of the Reformation, its violent incorporation into the British state and its failure to industrialise in the 19th century.
The book examines the roots of the national independence movement and concludes with an assessment of Ireland’s development since independence and partition, stressing the structural background to the country’s current debt crisis.
