Great Britain and Ireland since 1500
In recent years there has been growing interest in the contrasts and parallels between the development of Ireland and that of its closest neighbours: England, Scotland and Wales. Discussion, however, has concentrated primarily on political and constitutional issues. This collection of essays looks instead at other areas of development: in particular, at economic development, language and culture, and the law.
