The Druids by Peter Berresford Ellis( Book )

26 editions published between 1994 and 2003 in 4 languages and held by 1,581 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this compelling and highly reliable study of the Druids, respected Celtic scholar Peter Berresford Ellis sifts through the historical evidence and, with reference to the latest archaeological and etymological findings, gives the first authentic account of who the mysterious Druids were and what role they played in Celtic society." "The Druids emerge as the intellectual caste of ancient Celtic society. They were the doctors, the lawyers, the ambassadors, the advisers to kings. They also had a religious function. Ellis describes the special Druidic training, their philosophy, their belief in auguries, and their intriguing origins. He also shows that the current "New Age" image of the Druids as benevolent wizards comes from a woefully inadequate interpretation of the facts."--Jacket
A dictionary of Irish mythology by Peter Berresford Ellis( Book )

39 editions published between 1987 and 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,082 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Celtic women : women in Celtic society and literature by Peter Berresford Ellis( Book )

19 editions published between 1995 and 1998 in English and held by 798 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The results of Ellis's engaging study show that Celtic society undoubtedly maintained an order in which women were harmoniously balanced in relation to men. Beside the repressive male dominance of classic Mediterranean society, the position of women in Celtic myth, law, and early history seems to have constituted an ideal. Celtic women could govern; took prominent - sometimes the highest - roles in political, religious, and artistic life; could own property; could divorce; and were even expected to fight alongside men in battles. It was not until the Celts' encounter and conflict with the alien values of the Roman and Germanic cultures and the arrival of Western Christianity that the rights of women began to erode

9 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 644 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book explains the historical factors behind Rome's overt racial prejudice against the Celts and shows at the same time the important Celtic contribution to the development of Roman culture - in weaponry and warfare, in transport technology and, above all, in the Celtic contribution to early Latin literature
Hell or Connaught! : the Cromwellian colonisation of Ireland, 1652-1660 by Peter Berresford Ellis( Book )

25 editions published between 1975 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 637 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cromwell's ruthless colonisation of Ireland is a story of cruelty and terror which still reverberates after more than three hundred years. Peter Berresford Ellis's acclaimed account of the period chillingly recreates 'the curse of Cromwell' the executions and mass transportations, the confiscation of lands and the banishment of Irish landowners 'to Hell or Connaught'. -- Publisher description

James Connolly (1868-1916) became a leading Irish socialist and revolutionary, and was one of the leaders of Ireland's rebellion in 1916. As a youth he had served in the British army in Ireland and, seeing how they treated the local population, became hugely disillusioned with the British Army. He became involved in socialism in Scotland and was the driving force behind the creation of Ireland's trade union movement. He was Commandant of the Dublin Brigade in the Easter Rising and, too injured to stand before the firing squad, was executed tied to a chair. Written in an entertain
