This book has been indispensable as a reference in writing the stories of my own ancestors in the context of the history they lived. MacManus' work is essential for a full understanding of Irish history. com User, January 31, 2000. I found it refreshing that I wasn't constantly assaulted with "in your face" revisionism, which seems to be the rite of passage for modern historical writers. MacManus does not try to push some political or social paradigm down your throat.

The Story of the Irish Race is fascinating to me, as it gives so much more detailed Irish history that I've never heard before! NOT light reading, but good for small sessions. One objection - ALL surnames mentioned in the book are NOT listed in the index. Especially interesting was where the peoples who BECAME "more Irish than the Irish" came from. Horrible to find out how the English treated the Irish - not something I knew well - and fun to read about the various women who were leaders at various stages.

Written in 1922. Style is difficult to follow and some material significantly dated. I am a retired history teacher, so I appreciated this book because of it's flaws.
ME
I first read this book from the library. Mine that I bought is in far better condition than the one I checked out. Outstanding read and if one wants to get the lowdown on this history of the Irish/Celts/Scots this is by far one of the more concise and understandable books on the history. Keep in mind, I am not prone to just handing out 5 stars, this is in outstanding condition, its an outstanding book and the price was reasonable!

Most comprehensive history of the Irish race. Much information was unknown to me and probably many others who have nver delved into Irish history.
Unfortunately, for someone without knowledge of Gaelic. it was almost impossible to pronounce the names and places referred to in the book. The extent of the impact of Irish scholars a nd learned clerics in ancient days was a revelation. It will open your eyes to the great history this nation has.

It is a very good overview of Ireland's long history and its culture that rose and fell often due to the presence or absence of foreign influence and conquest. That some of the Irish were scholarly influences abroad was beneficial to help prevent the total collapse of western knowledge. I learned a lot.

This is a long written work that to be honest, I have not had time to complete. So far, it appears to be excellent. I will re-post a review when I have completed the book.

This is an excellent resource, written encyclopedic style, for a scholarly attempt at a history of the people known as Irish. Like many other first attempts, the best parts about it are the bibliography, and the candor with which the author(s) assess the various sources.

The best news is that this edition appears to have been completely recomposited, so the Kindle edition seems to have been generated from digital text, rather than from error-prone optical character recognition (OCR). I have a copy of a hard-cover edition, and although some of the decorative illustrations are amusing, I'm really glad that the current editors chose to get the text accurate rather than try to reproduce the appearance of an earlier edition.
It is a decent read. It's what the title implies which is increasingly not the case for books of history. Learned some things I hadn't known and low priced so, good deal.
