Description du produit

Revue de presse

An impressive monograph which marshals evidence from various sources, archaeological, oral and written, to present a comprehensive account. --Books Ireland

Deserves the widest possible readership. --Dublin Review of Books

Superb and witty ... as a tour d'horizon, it is unmatched. --The Irish Times

Highly informative ... well-argued and often brilliant scholarship ... fascinating. --Sunday Business Post

...his wry, convivial style makes this complex account an effortless and enjoyable read. --Current Archaeology

Mallory does a good job in the closing chapter at summarising the evidence and the theories. --Books Ireland

Informative, yet entertaining and the high quality illustrations bring the text to life ... the result of decades of quality academic research and has been published to an equally high standard. It is essential reading for anyone interested in Irish history and archaeology. --Ulster Archaeology Society

Professor Emeritus Jim Mallory tells a very good story - he writes in an easy, clear, chatty, even humorous style ... he makes the complex topic he has chosen far more intelligible than might have been the case from a writer with less verve ... Although the book is solidly factual, and every statement of fact is carefully documented, it is also fun to read ... should be on the bookshelf of every archaeologically interested 'Irelander'. --Ulster Journal of Archaeology

A groundbreaking archaeological survey ... Mallory is as gifted (and often droll) a stylist as he is meticulous a scholar. --The Irish Times

Mallory brilliantly synthesises the complexities of geology, archaeology, historical/mythical sources, genetics and linguistics ... he takes genuinely difficult subjects, explains the conflicting arguments with refreshing clarity and draws conclusion with the forensic precision of a top-class barrister. Yet the book has the readability of a detective story ... Whether you are going across the sea to Ireland or not - I urge you to read this brilliant book --Minerva

So important ... Written clearly and with a light touch, the book is also well illustrated ... At times I found I was reading it like a detective story, more thriller than documentary. It was very difficult to put down ... Wonderful! --History Today

Présentation de l'éditeur

Written as an engrossing detective story by the leading authority, this is the first major attempt in nearly eighty years to deal with the core issues and multiple influences in the creation of the Irish people. Essential reading, with over 120 informative line drawings and maps, for anyone interested in Ireland and the Irish, this book brings together the evidence of archaeology, culture, tradition, genetics and linguistics to shed welcome new light on the age-old riddle of Irish origins.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Fascinating book for those who love Irish history 4 mars 2014
Par Laura - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I haven't even finished this book and I love it already. I have never once found another book that looks at Irish history in its entirety, as in all the way back. This is not necessarily for those who have no knowledge of archaeology, as the fellow who writes this speaks in a "dumbed down" archaeologist's language. It's still a bit technical. I graduated with a degree in history and a long love of archaeology, so I have little issue with the language, but I can see how it might be an issue for those with no knowledge of archaeology at all.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Intriguing, detailed but complicated 11 juin 2013
Par Tollyboy - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
If you want to know for sure how the Irish became Irish then you'll have to wait. The Irelanders, as the author calls them, probably arrived about 8,000 BC, based on archaeological evidence. The Irish, that is those speaking the Irish language, came anywhere from 1BC to 1AD.
So is there a one-line answer to the book's title? Not that I can make out.
Each chapter deals with archaeological and linguistic evidence, and as Prof. Mallory is an expert in both fields he lays out the many theories and claims based on what is known, and each chapter ends with his Conclusions, which summarize what he has said and spells out what he believes is factual.
The book is entertaining, for sure, but has an academic feel to it, which is really not surprising given that he is a professor at a Belfast university.
Mallory also has a sense of humor, which he slips in from time to time.
Am I glad I read it? Absolutely yes. Would I recommend it? Absolutely yes.
But do I know the answer contained in the book's title? Kinda, sorta, but not really sure.
I still have another history-of-the-Irish book to read, which I sense without opening it will have a less academic approach to the subject.
Bottom line: The subject is a very complicated one, and Mallory's academic approach and professional accomplishments are used to their full to nail down the answer.
Possibly reading it again (NOT an easy thing to do) would bring more enlightenment.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Fun Read 29 juin 2014
Par Tom - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I loved this book. For a book that was heavy with academic information, it felt surprisingly light. The humor and brilliant writing made it feel like more of a summer beach read than anything else. Nevertheless, it is wonderful introduction to Irish prehistory starting with the big bang and going right up to the time of Niall of the Nine Hostages.

Quite different from the Irish "histories" I read as a child. Solidly based on science and provable history, and entertaining as well.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 The beginnings of 'Irishness' in a broad history. 7 avril 2014
Par John R Gibb - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Interesting account of the creation of Ireland from the days of Gondwana to recent times and the beginnings of 'Irishness' in the population from humble and sparse beginnings. Worth reading.
