Editors Note Ireland in the World Order examines Ireland's development from the medieval to the modern era, comparing its unique trajectory with that of England, Scotland, and Wales. Maurice Coakley focuses on key elements that contributed to Ireland's development, examining its bloody and violent incorporation into the British state, its refusal to embrace the Protestant Reformation, and failure to industrialize in the 19th century. Coakley considers the crucial question of why Ireland's national identity has come to rest on a mass movement for independence.Cutting through many of the myths ? imperialist and nationalist ? which have obscured the real reasons for Ireland's course of development, Ireland in the World Order provides a new perspective for students and academics of Irish history.
