Volume VII chronicles Ireland's struggle to remain neutral and sovereign during the `Emergency' years. The volume provides the clearest and most accessible explanation to date of Ireland's wartime neutrality and opens up discussions about Ireland's sovereignty and significance among the great powers of the post-war world.
Nazi gold, fugitive war criminals, the threat of nuclear war and the growing dominance of Communism, issues dealt with by the Irish diplomats in the years immediately after the Second World War, are central themes in Volume VIII.
'DIFP IX' brings together the entire spectrum of Ireland's foreign relations between 1948 and 1951. It includes Ireland's role as a founder member of the Council of Europe in 1949 and the state's response to the creation of the European Coal and Steel Community in 1950 - the origins of today's EU.
DIFP XI covers five critical years in Irish foreign policy when, at the height of the Cold War, Ireland played a central role between East and West at the United Nations General Assembly on issues ranging from nuclear disarmament to apartheid to the admission of Communist China.
