 About the Book 

The Anglo-Irish oligarchy gave Ireland much of her modern culture and architecture--but also left a legacy that has festered violently. A highly original, insightful look at the Troubles traces the rise and sudden disappearance of this elite group that so dominated Irish life from the 18th to the early 20th centuries. .pure pleasure.the most entertaining and fascinating book I have read for a long time.--Molly Keane.
