In this exciting new history John Dorney aims to tell the story of the Irish revolution in an interesting and accessible way to the general reader and to try to explain the causes, course and results of the revolution in an engaging way. Accessible throughout, Peace after the Final Battle 1913-1923 tells the 'big picture' history through the eyes of individual participants. Two things make this book different from others on the subject: most popular history books lack real depth of information and cogent analysis of the period, especially on the civil war. Peace after the Final Battle 1913-1923 aims to provide as much of the 'full story' as possible. Academic books on the other hand can often be bogged down by personal disputes over details between historians and/or be too dense and detailed to engage the interest of the average reader. This book is both intellectually satisfying and a good read.

Named Book of the MonthClub's Book of the Year, 2017 Selected one of New York Times Readers’ Favorite Books of 2017 From the beloved New York Times bestselling author of The Boy In the Striped Pajamas, a sweeping, heartfelt saga about the course of one man's life, beginning and ending in post-war Ireland Cyril Avery is not a real Avery -- or at least, that's what his adoptive parents tell him. And he never will be. But if he isn't a real Avery, then who is he? Born out of wedlock to a teenage girl cast out from her rural Irish community and adopted by a well-to-do if eccentric Dublin couple via the intervention of a hunchbacked Redemptorist nun, Cyril is adrift in the world, anchored only tenuously by his heartfelt friendship with the infinitely more glamourous and dangerous Julian Woodbead. At the mercy of fortune and coincidence, he will spend a lifetime coming to know himself and where he came from - and over his many years, will struggle to discover an identity, a home, a country, and much more. In this, Boyne's most transcendent work to date, we are shown the story of Ireland from the 1940s to today through the eyes of one ordinary man. The Heart's Invisible Furies is a novel to make you laugh and cry while reminding us all of the redemptive power of the human spirit.

Shortly after graduating from University of Glasgow in 1934, Elizabeth “Bessie” Williamson began working as a temporary secretary at the Laphroaig Distillery on the Scottish island Islay. Williamson quickly found herself joining the boys in the tasting room, studying the distillation process, and winning them over with her knowledge of Scottish whisky. After the owner of Laphroaig passed away, Williamson took over the prestigious company and became the American spokesperson for the entire Scotch whisky industry. Impressing clients and showing her passion as the Scotch Whisky Association’s trade ambassador, she soon gained fame within the industry, becoming known as the greatest female distiller. Whiskey Women tells the tales of women who have created this industry, from Mesopotamia’s first beer brewers and distillers to America’s rough-and-tough bootleggers during Prohibition. Women have long distilled, marketed, and owned significant shares in spirits companies. Williamson’s story is one of many among the influential women who changed the Scotch whisky industry as well as influenced the American bourbon whiskey and Irish whiskey markets. Until now their stories have remained untold.

Of all of the world's countries, America is the one that we all think we know. World globalization and the dominance of English language and American idiom makes us secure in our "knowledge" of what the United States is and who her people are. This book jettisons all such pre-conceptions. It affords a window on the American experience that eschews many of the hackneyed representations of old. It throws back the curtains on the hidden lives of a people who quietly live along the dusty weave of a Mid-West highway. Small towns, woods and wayside stops. Like passengers in the rear of the truck, we are brought on a journey of "life as it is lived" for the quintessential "people of the road"âe*the Irishâe*American Pavees (Travellers). This book is a small glimpse of a distinct culture, language and a way of life. As bravely-written as it is unique, this is the story of a people who have lived in the shadows of rumour, hearsay and a hot summer sun. Strange, yet familiar. These are the shy migrants of the nameless road.
