More About This Title The Lost Years


This is a slice of history from the 6 years when Ireland declared itself neutral in Britain's war with Hitler and found itself separated from world events. It discusses the new Irish state's relationship with the powers at war; the scarcity of economic resources which out of necessity led to rationing then diversification; and the impact of cultural and intellectual isolation—all of which contributed to a crucial watershed in Ireland's history and a time of great change.
