White savage : William Johnson and the invention of America by Fintan O'Toole ( Book )
11 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in English and held by 845 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A new biography of the man who forged America's alliance with the Iroquois. William Johnson was scarcely more than a boy when he left Ireland and his Gaelic, Catholic family to become a Protestant in the service of Britain's North American empire. In New York by 1738, Johnson moved to the frontiers along the Mohawk River, where he eventually became a landowner; served as principal British intermediary with the Iroquois Confederacy; commanded British, colonial, and Iroquois forces that helped to defeat the French in 1755; and created the first groups of "rangers," who fought like Indians and led the way to the Patriots' victories in the Revolution. The key to Johnson's effectiveness was the style in which he lived as a "white savage." He had two wives, one European, one Mohawk; became fluent in Mohawk; and pioneered the use of Indians as active partners in the making of a new America.--From publisher description

Ship of fools : how stupidity and corruption sank the Celtic Tiger by Fintan O'Toole ( Book )
21 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 597 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The "Irish economic miracle" was built on good old-fashioned subsidies (from the European Union) and the simple fact that until the 1980s Ireland was by the standards of the developed world so economically backward that the only way was up. And as it began to catch up to European and American averages, the boom lured in investors, the Irish government deregulated and all but abandoned financial oversight, and a great Irish financial ceilidh began. It would last for a decade. When the global financial crisis of 2008 arrived it struck Ireland harder than anywhere. How Ireland managed to achieve such a spectacular implosion is a story of corruption, carelessness, and venality.--From publisher's description

Reading Colm Tóibín ( Book )
2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Colm Tóibín is a critically acclaimed, internationally lauded, and extremely popular writer who has written successfully across a variety of forms over the past twenty years. However, for all of his acclaim, there is an extraordinary dearth of criticism on this prominent Irish writer. To date no full-length studies of Tóibín's work have been published in Ireland or overseas, and only a few short essays have appeared in specialist academic journals and generla surveys of recent Irish literature. This collection...provides an illuminating exploration of many of the themes and concerns which have engaged Tóibín ever since the publication of his first book, Walking along the border (1987)....The book also includes a lengthy interview of Tóibín conducted by his former Magill associate, Fintan O'Toole.--From publisher description
