Review:

The most important monograph on Irish history of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries to be published in recent years. - Matthew Kelly, English Historical Review ""A book of impressive scholarship and striking originality."" - Gearoid O Tuathaigh, Field Day Review ""Guy Beiner here shows himself to be a historian of unusual talent."" - Marianne Elliott, Times Literary Supplement ""Based on massive research.... [Beiner] demonstrates effectively how orally transmitted local memories have contributed to historical knowledge about the 1798 French invasion of western Ireland, as well as much else about the Irish past."" - Choice ""Accessible, full of intriguing detail, and eminently teachable.... Superb, painstaking scholarship that makes lasting contributions to Irish studies and to cultural and historical studies writ large."" - Ray Cashman, New Hibernia Review
