Reviews

"Icons of Irishness from the Middle Ages to the Modern World may seem to be a relatively brief study, but it is not one to be taken lightly . . . Williams offers a fascinating and illuminating study of the construction of an ethnic identity that links medieval models to the more recent past and the present." - The Medieval Review
