In what PW described as an ``engaging revisionist chronicle,'' the author traces Irish history from 1600, when the country had a subsistence economy and was home to a welter of peoples, each of whom defined their ``Irishness'' differently, to the 1970s, when Ireland--despite three centuries of conquest and fissure--was a country with a powerful identity.
