KIRKUS REVIEW

A serious history of Ireland and her people, by an Anglo-Irish author, this begins with the long period of ""splendid isolation"" when the country was given over to local brannigans and moves on through the centuries to the eventual establishment of the Irish Free State. Wibberley has an eye for the ""chronic shortcomings"" and ""talented imbecility"" of the Irish and a sympathy for their long oppression. He tells their story with color and vigorous concern.
