Synopsis

Modern Ireland by Gerard Brockie, Raymond Walshe

This new edition covers four syllabus topics, two of which students must select for study: Politics and Society in Northern Ireland, 1949-1993 (on which the compulsory documents-study question in the Leaving Certificate Examination will be based); Movements for Political and Social reform, 1870-1914; The Pursuit of Sovereignty and the Impact of Partition, 1912-1949; and Government, Economy and Society in the Republic of Ireland, 1949-1989. It is written and illustrated with both Higher and Ordinary level students in mind. Detailed guidance is also given for the research study, which all students must complete. All the required case studies are included with the documentary and visual evidence, and accompanying exercises. Key personalities and key concepts are highlighted, as required by the syllabus. It provides numerous exam-focused questions and exercises. New syllabus outline is included for ease of reference.
