This richly illustrated book is a history of Irish foreign policy, rather than an institutional history of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade itself (though the two obviously go hand in hand). It explores how a small state such as Ireland has related to the wider world, by examining how Irish diplomats and politicians responded to the challenges presented by the upheavals of the twentieth century and how this small European state engaged with the world, from the Versailles peace conference of 1919 to the globalisation of the twenty-first century.
This book examines the historical background and contextualisation of Ireland in Europe; representations of Ireland in European literature and Irish literature in Europe; Irish art, architecture, film and music in European discourses; and European studies, tourism and journalism.
