Based on Kevin McCourt`s extensive personal papers and on many other archives, this is not only the biography of an outstanding Irishman but also an invaluable contribution to the economic and social history of Ireland between the mid 1940s to the mid 1980s.
Cleverly packaged to look like one book, this set actually contains 15 miniature board books in Irish.
The famous guidebook writer and publisher, Karl Baedeker, never visited Ireland. But many of his contemporaries did. Using a selection of these old books, Vitaliev retraces their steps and reports on twenty-first century Ireland, in the age of the Celtic Tiger, contrasted with the island a century ago.
