22 editions published between 1995 and 2002 in English and held by 1,249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In light of the recent movement toward all-party talks - notwithstanding the IRA's resumption of terrorist bombing attacks in England - Tim Pat Coogan offers a balanced and reflective assessment of the complex conflicts in contemporary Northern Ireland. An authoritative observer of the nationalist cause with strong political contacts on both sides of the border, Coogan sets the historical context for the resurgence of centuries-old tensions that led to the civil protest and pogroms of the late 1960s. He examines the introduction of British forces to the streets of Derry and Belfast and the reaction to their presence - at first welcomed as protection from Loyalist attack, they were soon resented by nationalists and many became victims of the Republican forces' outrage. Coogan insightfully probes the spread of IRA violence across the Irish Sea to key locations in Britain and the responses of the British government, its troops, and various Unionist organizations

Ireland has passed through her period of revolution and the turbulent aftermath, and her long hard climb to economic prosperity is nearing success. She has reached a watershed in her development wherein the emphasis is no longer on political or constitutional transformation but on economic and social change. Her wounds have healed, or nearly so. She is now able to see herself for what she is: a small nation with much to be proud of, particularly in the field of international affairs; a nation not afraid to face up to its problems. - Introduction
Wherever green is worn : the story of the Irish diaspora by Tim Pat Coogan ( Book )
21 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 886 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In the classic song Galway Bay, Bing Crosby summed up the passionate, bittersweet and sometimes conflict-filled relationship between the Irish spread across the globe and their homeland. Today, the population of Ireland is five million, but seventy million people worldwide can call themselves Irish. Though Tim Pat Coogan never strayed far from his birthplace in County Dublin, he was drawn to the outposts of Ireland that existed beyond his country's shores. "As I grew older and travelled," he wrote, "my imagination was seized by the extent of the Irish population in the world outside Ireland and the variety of conditions in which it lived.""--BOOK JACKET

Eamon de Valera : the man who was Ireland by Tim Pat Coogan ( Book )
11 editions published between 1993 and 2001 in English and held by 599 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In the days of Ireland's fight for freedom from British rule, when he was an outlaw in his own land, he made a triumphal tour of the United States, and throughout his long rule he would frequently tap a vast reservoir of American support. Yet after a half century in power (the longest reign of any twentieth-century leader), de Valera was probably as much reviled as he was revered. Many see him as the architect of Ireland's perennially perilous economy (the worst in Western Europe). He also helped create a church-state monolith that still overshadows the nation today. De Valera's personality and policies bequeathed to the Irish people their current struggles over women's rights, relations with Northern Ireland, and the high tide of emigration that continues to drain the country of many of its best and brightest citizens
