The Story of the Irish Race
6 x 9
In The Story of the Irish Race, Seumas MacManus presents the whole saga of the Irish from the earliest times to our own. It is as once a work of sound scholarship and as easy to read as a novel, for it is beautifully written. MacManus gives not only facts and dates and names, but a real sense of the mind and temperament of a people, their ways of life, ideals, and an understanding account of their culture: the vitally important matters that merely academic historians overlook or glance at all too quickly.
The Story of the Irish Race is indispensable for anyone who wants to understand the Irish people: their political struggle, their magnificent literature, and their whole contribution to Western Civilization.
