Written by a team of more than 100 leading historians from around the world, this is the most comprehensive and authoritative history of Ireland yet attempted.

Vibrant, comprehensive, and accessible, The Cambridge History of Ireland presents the Irish story – or stories – from 600 to the present. Four comprehensive volumes bring together the latest scholarship, setting Irish history within broader Atlantic, European, imperial and global contexts.

The work benefits from a strong political narrative framework, and is distinctive in including essays that address the full range of social, economic, religious, linguistic, military, cultural, artistic and gender history, and in challenging traditional chronological boundaries in a manner that offers new perspectives and insights.

Among the contributors are eight historians from Queen’s: Dr John Cunningham, Professor Peter Gray, Dr Andrew Holmes, Professor Fearghal McGarry, Professor Mary O'Dowd, Dr Ian Campbell and retired staff: Professor Paul Bew and Professor David Hayton.

The Belfast launch of The Cambridge History of Ireland takes place on 14 May at 5pm in the Great Hall (NOTE change of venue). The guest speaker is Professor Sean Connolly. Please register here.
