In this companion volume of his "The Broken Harp", Tomás Mac Síomóin explains the reasons for the rapidly diminishing importance of Gaelic and the Gaeltacht in contemporary Irish life where international considerations increasingly determine our national cultural parameters. He also explains how Official Standard Irish came to be a repository of archaic forms of the language - and why such archaism is foisted on learners who resent it. He describes a simpler modernised Irish, based on current Gaeltacht speech, would better serve their purpose. Or, he asks, has colonialism sunk such deep roots in the Irish psyche that a need to restore our original language and culture no longer has relevancy for citizens of this Anglophone nation, Ireland?

Scholar and statesman Conor Cruise O'Brien illuminates why peace has been so elusive in Northern Ireland. He explains the conflation of religion and nation through Irish history into our own time. Using his life as a prism through which he interprets Ireland's past and present, O'Brien identifies case after case of the lethal mixing of God with country that has spilled oceans of blood throughout this century of nationalism and that, from Bosnia to Northern Ireland, still curses the world. "O'Brien's bravura performance [is] seductive in its intellectual sweep and literary assurance."—Toby Barnard, Times Literary Supplement "Has the magical insistence which Conor Cruise O'Brien can produce at his best. . . . Where he looks back to his own childhood the book shines. He writes of his mother and father with effortless grace and candor, with a marvelous, elegant mix of affection and detachment."—Observer

Unearthing events that have barely been covered in recent published records, this account examines the conflicts of a remote Scottish Highland community in the 1900s, bringing to light a broad spectrum of social and economic concerns, including a remarkable willingness to fight for principles and the welfare of friends, neighbors, and coworkers. Exploring a wide range of experiences and loyalties, this history compares successes and failures, as well as compromises, to discover the historiographical significance of a forgotten land.
