24.1cm x 16cm. xix, 328 pages. Original Hardcover with original illustrated dustjacket. Very good condition with only minor signs of external wear. Endpaper inscribed by preowner. This is a work of reference which provides brief biographies of over 1,400 Irish men and women who have been notable in their chosen fields, whether in Ireland itself of in the wider world. Unlike most biographical dictionaries, it includes the living as well as the dead, both North and South. Contains a vast panorama of human accomplishment across a wide range of activity. It focuses on people whose principal contribution has been made in the 20th century, so that politicians such as de Valera and Collins and writers such as Joyce and Yeats are here, although they were born in the 19th century. The entries are as various as Irish life itself. They include Van Morrison, James Connolly, Dawson Stelfox, Willie Bermingham, Bernadette McAliskey, Christy Ring, Marian Finucane, Pauline Bewick and Roddy Doyle. Summarises Irish achievement in the last hundred years with brevity, authority and style. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 41401AB

Über diesen Titel

From Library Journal:

Containing the biographies of 1400 notable Irish men and women of the 20th century, this volume gathers its entries from a wide variety of more conventional reference works that many libraries may already own, such as Who's Who. Irish historian McRedmond and the publisher solicited candidates from over 40 consultants and researchers and then set "a draconian limit" on the number of entries. Because of this limit and the varying biographies used as sources, almost every reader will find omissions (nothing on Hannah Sheehy-Skeffington?) or irritating differences in the depth of information for each entry (e.g., the name of Joyce's children are given but not those of Yeats). Given this caveat, however, the result, covering people accomplished in every field from politics, law, and literature to music and sports, is an excellent way for a researcher to find basic information about Irish celebrities from Eamon de Valera to U2.
