This is the first comprehensive history of Ireland and the British Empire. It examines the different phases of Ireland's colonial status from the seventeenth century until the present, along with the impact of Irish people, politics, and nationalism on the Empire at large. The result is a new interpretation of Irish history and its place in the rise, expansion, and decline of the British Empire.
